KYIV, 4 December 2019 - The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) took part in the Ukrainian Industrial Days event co-organized by Ukraine’s Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the Ministry of Economic Development, Trade and Agriculture.
UNIDO’s representative delivered welcoming remarks at the Second Annual Forum on Industrial Parks held within the framework of the Industrial Days event which aimed to facilitate the development of synergies between governments and private sector organizations and foster innovative industrial-agrarian models allowing for sustainable economic development.
“Industrialization is more than an engine of economic growth; it is also the catalyst for the technological, financial and socio-economic transformation,” said the UNIDO representative. “A major advantage of industrial parks is that they provide an institutional framework, modern services and a physical infrastructure that may not be available in the rest of the country.”
The event served as a platform to promote industrial parks and eco-parks as a tool to further inclusive and sustainable industrial development both in developed and developing countries.
