UNIDO Ukraine industrial country diagnostics study

Brussels, 21 February 2024 – The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), in collaboration with the Government of Ukraine, has today launched the UNIDO Ukraine industrial country diagnostics study at an event titled “Rebuilding Ukraine’s Industry” at the United Nations House in Brussels, Belgium.

Responding to the request of the Government of Ukraine, the diagnostic study is crucial for laying the groundwork for Ukraine’s sustainable industrial recovery. This launch marks a significant step towards the forthcoming transformative and cross-sectoral UNIDO green industrial recovery programme, which has so far garnered substantial support from European Union Member States, including Austria, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Germany, Poland, as well as Japan and Switzerland.

The launch event in Brussels served as a unique platform for key stakeholders from Ukraine, the EU, and UNIDO to discuss and strategize on the essential steps needed for the country’s future industrialization and green recovery. Attendees had the opportunity to engage in exchanges setting the stage for a collaborative effort towards rebuilding a resilient and sustainable industrial sector in Ukraine.

Gerd Müller, Director General of UNIDO, voiced the necessity of this study: “With our new diagnostic study and green industrial recovery programme, UNIDO supports Ukraine’s economy to become more resilient.” He reminded the importance of coming together to create solutions, stating that UNIDO is “ready to partner with the EU to ensure a better future for Ukraine.”

Oleksandr Kamyshin, Minister of Strategic Industries of Ukraine, thanked UNIDO for the partnership and important work, concluding that “this study will help us create a strategic pathway towards resilient and EU-compatible green industry“.

Vsevolod Chentsov, Head of the Mission of Ukraine to the European Union, added: “The study is full of information that will help Ukraine and the EU prepare evidence- and data-based interventions for Ukraine”.

In this regard, the launch event set the stage for continuing efforts to bring together the Government of Ukraine, the EU, and multilateral institutions to cooperate effectively for rapid improvements towards a strong and resilient economy.
