Topics will include possible synergies and trade-offs between industrial policy objectives and measures oriented to industrial growth, employment generation and environmental impact. Strategic directions for industrial development, including addressing the sustainability of emerging sectors, will be at the forefront of discussion. The event aims to identify policies on industrial technical change towards more environmentally friendly paths, including improving industrial energyefficiency. The session will include a presentation of UNIDO�s 2011 Industrial Development Report, �Industrial Energy Efficiency for Sustainable Wealth Creation�.
