2019 Forum on Globalization and Industrialization - UNIDO/KCG Conference: How the Fourth Industrial Revolution is Changing Global Production Networks
The 2019 Forum on Globalization and Industrialization (FGI) aims to bring together policymakers, representatives from international organizations, academia and business to discuss the challenges and opportunities of technological shifts for global value chains (GVCs) to drive inclusive and sustainable development. It is the fourth edition in a series of annual forums jointly organized by UNIDO and the Kiel Institute for the World Economy (IfW Kiel) since 2016 to focus specifically on issues related to global production, trade and investment.
The 2019 FGI aims to support evidence-based policymaking at the international level and is expected to enrich discussions and exchange of ideas, leading to better policies, development practices and research in the subject area.
