Bilateral discussion with the European Brand Institute

VIENNA, 1 October 2020 - The Director General LI Yong had a bilateral discussion with Gerhard Hrebicek, President of the European Brand Institute (EBI), to discuss next steps in the cooperation between UNIDO and EBI in support of branding for sustainability. In an economy that is increasingly digitalised and slowly recovers from COVID-19, brands can play an important role for an accelerated economic recovery across the globe. Expanding UNIDO’s and EBI’s branding activities globally could therefore contribute to swift economic recovery and achieve sustainable growth. On this occasion, the signed Memorandum of Understanding has been exchanged, which has been delayed due to COVID-19.
