    The launch event will serve to present and discuss the report’s main messages, which are expected to bring new insights on how advanced digital production technologies are re-shaping the process of industrial development. It will furthermore elaborate on the possible responses that developing countries can take to prepare for these changes.

    The event additionally aims to help stimulate thinking on future courses of action in terms of policymaking, development practices, research and advocacy.
