Peru to play host of UNIDO General Conference 2013

Peru is all set to host the fifteenth session of the UNIDO (United Nations Industrial Development Organization) General Conference. The event will take place in capital Lima from 2nd December to 6th December. The decision to arrange the event in Peru was taken by UNIDO Industrial Development Board in Vienna at the organization's headquarters.

Gladys Trivino, Peru’s Minister of Production, said that industrialization must be the next step in the country’s development. This would generate more quality jobs and a competitive business environment. All developing nations think industrialization as the future, but this tuck is not easy at all. He added that United Nations Industrial Development Organization is their great friend and they could be sure that the member states would support them to work on things that would result in mutual benefits.

In 1985, United Nations Industrial Development Organization became a specialized agency; and the General Conference had been arranged outside Vienna only twice – once in Thailand in 1987 and in Cameroon in 1993.

Speaking about Peru, we must inform that the South American country is pinning hopes that 2013 Dakar Rally will bring around $ 300 million as direct and indirect revenue. Peru's Minister of Foreign Trade and Tourism, told that the event might generate a business of US $ 276 million. The amount was calculated by the Ministry of Foreign Trade and Tourism’s office of Economic Studies. 2013 Dakar Rally will start from Lima, which is the finishing point of this year's edition.
