GMIS-2019 will drive the Fourth industrial revolution

The GMIS-2019 is about to take off on July, 9. The summit is a joint venue of the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and the United Arab Emirates. Russia provides great opportunities for the development of industry and high technology. The UNIDO head Li Yong has repeatedly given positive assessments of the close cooperation of the international organization and Russia. The cooperation includes Russia’s support of participation in large-scale industrialization programs in developing countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America, which contribute to a positive image in these regions. Besides, Russia also provides industrial development and maintenance projects in Armenia, Belarus, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. The signing of a cooperation agreement with the Eurasian Economic Commission and the provision of platforms for the St. Petersburg International Forum and GMIS-2019 were also noted by the UNIDO head as appositive move. In addition, the approaches of Russia and UNIDO to the solution of the socio-economic problems today are very common. The summit provides an opportunity to use all the necessary potential of the participating countries to expand cooperation with each other. The geographical location of Ekaterinburg on the border of Europe and Asia contributes to the development of economic relations of European entrepreneurs with partners from China, Japan and other Asian countries. The examples of the World Cup games in 2018 and the international industrial exhibition INNOPROM emphasize the availability of infrastructure facilities in the city for hosting major international events and accommodate up to 40,000 tourists per day. The organizer of the summit is preparing an exhibition of 100 startups, which includes the most promising sectors – the drivers of growth of the world economy and the Fourth Industrial Revolution. The willingness of international representatives to take part in the summit testifies their attitude towards Russia as a reliable trade and economic partner, which fulfills its obligations, despite US attempts to isolate Russia from the system of international relations.

Exporters leave for Turkey

SIALKOT: A six-member delegation of leading leather goods exporters left Sialkot for Turkey on Saturday, for a week-long study visit under the auspices of the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (Unido).

The head of the delegation, Muhammad Anwar Butt, told media that the Sialkot exporters would learn advanced leather and leather goods manufacturing technology from Turkish exporters and manufacturers, while visiting manufacturing facilities in Istanbul and Azmir (the big industrial cities of Turkey). The Pakistani exporters would also share their experiences and observations.

He said that the trip would also be helpful in the early transfer of advanced leather technology to Sialkot which would help upgrade and modernise the industry, enabling it to meet global challenges under the World Trade Organisation (WTO) regime.

Butt said that Unido had offered technical assistance and expertise to strengthen the leather industry which could be capable of meeting the international demand and quality standards. Unido has initiated a development project for this purpose which included provision of latest machinery for garments to the Leather Product Development Institute Sialkot, practical training and foreign study tours for hands-on knowledge.
