UN assistance for Indonesian producers?

The UNIDO has highlighted the importance of Indonesia’s footwear industry.

The United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO) has announced the creation of a new country programme for Indonesia, which will run until 2020. UNIDO director general, LI Yong, and Indonesia’s minister for industry, Saleh Hussein, attended the official inauguration of the programme at a ceremony in Jakarta. According to a UNIDO spokesperson, a budget of £27.4 million ($40 million) will be available to help fund projects that can deliver what the organisation terms ‘inclusive and sustainable industrial development’ for the country. The eradication of poverty, providing energy for all, cleaner production and effective partnerships are to be special areas of attention. The UNIDO has highlighted the production of footwear as one of Indonesia’s most important industries, and suggested that footwear projects may form part of the new programme.
