Speech on the UNIDO Day 2014 China International Technology Fair, Shanghai, 25 April 2014
Let us remind ourselves: Without technology and innovation, industrialization will
not happen, and without industrialization, development will not happen.
History has also taught us that technological progress is best fostered in, and by, the manufacturing sector. Without the industrial revolution we would not be where we are today, with great prosperity and riches beyond the imagination of our forefathers.
