VIENNA, 27 August 2014 – The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) will organize a major international event in Vienna from 4 to 5 November with the aim to further expand partnerships and scale up investment for inclusive and sustainable industrial development.
“To further support its renewed mandate, UNIDO has planned to convene two global forums this year. During the first one, held in June, Member States engaged in a strategic dialogue on how to formulate and operationalize inclusive and sustainable industrial development strategies and policies. That event also addressed the development of state-of-the-art business infrastructure and industrial parks in particular,” said UNIDO Director General LI Yong.
The second global forum will aim to pilot the establishment of innovative partnership-based business models to implement strategies for inclusive and sustainable industrial development.
