Speeches of the Director-General in 2005

Acceptance Speech on Appointment as Director-General of UNIDO

Industry, and along with it UNIDO, has a crucial role to play in achieving the United Nations Millennium Development Goals and making poverty history. This requires implementing pro-poor industrialization and private sector development strategies; improving governance; strengthening linkages between industry, agriculture and trade; stimulating the dynamic growth of small and medium enterprises, in particular in agro-processing; and enhancing the contribution of industry to health, which is so important for effectively fighting pandemic disease.
