UNIDO is a long-standing and important partner of the TICAD process since its foundation in 1993. It has been actively implementing a number of technical cooperation projects in Africa, to fulfil the TICAD commitments. Since the last TICAD7, over the past three years, UNIDO and Japan have cooperated with countries in Africa implementing projects worth more than 35 million dollars. UNIDO’s expertise and experience, as well as its function as a liaison platform between the private sector and partner countries, have reinforced the TICAD process.
UNIDO is mandated by the General Assembly to play a leading role in the implementation of IDDA III. We all share the view that Africa’s industrial development is the international community’s common goal.  Creating the best synergies between the TICAD process and IDDA3 will allow us to scale-up the impact of both processes, in which UNIDO will play a key role.
We look forward to seeing you online at the UNIDO TICAD8 Week!
