Industrial Co-operation

We emphasised in our Interim Report that the accelerated development of manufacturing activities in the developing countries must be an essential part of a new international economic order. Manufacturing and processing activities are crucial to development not only because they are a prerequisite for modernising agriculture and satisfying basic human needs but also because of their contribution to the creation of employment. The reality facing the world is that, over the next 25 years, 1,000 million more people will be added to the labour force in the developing countries.
