Participation of the Minister of Education, Prof. Patrizio Bianchi, in the Webinar organised by UNCTAD and OECD on 'Reclaiming Industrial Policy For Development - Putting Policymaking Theory Into Practice'.

The Minister of Education, Prof. Patrizio Bianchi, spoke today at the webinar organized by UNCTAD and OECD on "Reclaiming industrial policy for development - putting policymaking theory into practice".

Minister Bianchi pointed out that the process of structural transformation of industrial policy, accelerated by the pandemic crisis, must be based on the environmental and technological-digital pillars and have the human factor as a central and determining factor. To enable society as a whole to keep pace with the rapid process of change under way and to manage the new technologies and their constant transformation, he added, the Draghi government believes it is necessary to make a major investment in the education system, which will provide for the updating of schools and forms of continuous learning for the entire population. International coordination must also be ensured to guarantee the necessary integration of industrial policies developed at national level.

The event, which focuses on the importance of supporting developing countries in drawing up and implementing industrial policies as a priority tool for growth, employment and sustainable development, is part of a series of meetings organised in preparation for UNCTAD XV, the high-level meeting of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development, which will be held, in virtual mode, from 3 to 7 October.

The registration of the event is available on the UNCTAD website at the page: https://unctad.org/meeting/unctad15-pre-event-reclaiming-industrial-policy-development-putting-policymaking-theory
