PRODUCE and UNIDO present guidelines for Peru's national industrial park strategy

LIMA, 11 December 2018 - Inaugurated by Peru's Vice Minister of SMEs and Industry, Javier Dávila, and by UNIDO’s Programme for Country Partnership (PCP) Peru Coordinator, Petra Schwager, a two-day consultation process allowed for the Peruvian Ministry of Production, through the National Productive Diversification Programme (PNDP), to present the guidelines for the formulation of the National Strategy for the Development of Industrial Parks that aims at promoting industrial development.

Developed by PRODUCE and the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), the national strategy for industrial parks seeks to foster suitable conditions to mobilize resources and attract investments in modern, inclusive and environmentally sound industrial parks.

The guidelines propose the promotion of industrial parks to generate new value-added investments in sectors that contribute to the country's competitiveness, the creation of high-value jobs and foster local development. The guidelines further recommend three types of parks: value-added parks for small- and medium-sized enterprises; industrial parks based on private public partnership; and modern special economic zones.

The public and private sector also participated in the formulation of the guidelines, which were enhanced by the addition of international experiences from Mexico and Argentina. The consultation process also benefited from the expertise of representatives of the National Association of Industry and the International Financial Corporation of the World Bank.
