On 23 May 2013 a Regional Preparatory Meeting will be held in Amman, Jordan. The meeting is organized by UNIDO under the patronage of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.
The one-day preparatory meeting aims to provide further information on region-specific development challenges taking into account the extremely multifaceted needs of middle-income countries. Another main objective of this meeting is to initiate regional knowledge networks by connecting knowledge and experiences of national governments and regional development experts on the needs and concerns of Arab MICs to achieve sustained prosperity for all, particularly in the context of poverty reduction and inclusive and sustainable economic development.
