UNIDO - Japan cooperation: Partnering for Africa’s future
UNIDO has been an active partner of Japan and supporter of the Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD) since it was first held in October 1993. As UNIDO is tasked with leading the implementation of the third Industrial Development Decade for Africa (IDDA 3), in collaboration with a range of partners, UNIDO could be a key contributor to facilitate the effective collaboration between countries and institutions involved in the TICAD process, including the Government of Japan and African countries.
This year, TICAD 7 will be held in Yokohama City in Japan from August 28 to 30.
Taking this opportunity, UNIDO and Permanent Mission of Japan co-hosted a panel exhibition event at Rotunda at Vienna International Center (VIC) in order to showcase the cooperation between Japan and UNIDO for African industrial development as a partner event of TICAD 7.
The exhibition covered the selected UNIDO projects and programmes, funded by the Government of Japan, to Africa’s inclusive and sustainable industrial development. The cooperation between UNIDO and Japan in Egypt, Ethiopia, Kenya, Liberia, Morocco, Nigeria, Senegal, Somalia, South Africa, South Sudan and the Sudan will be showcased together with stories from beneficiaries. The advancement of the Sustainable Development Goals through the IDDA3 were also be highlighted.
