United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO)

The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), established in 1966 by the General Assembly and formalized as a specialized agency in 1986, continued its activities to improve the living conditions of people and promote global prosperity for the sustainable industrial development of developing countries and countries with economies in transition. In 1997, as UNIDO completed its reform process, there was an increase in new projects, which had registered an impressive growth for the first time in several years. The seventh session of the General Conference (Vienna, 1-5 December) appointed a new Director-General, endorsed the business plan on the future role and functions of UNIDO and adopted the 1998-1999 budget. The business plan enabled UNIDO to adapt its functions and priorities and orient its activities to the new realities of the changing global economic environment and ensure its viability and efficiency.
