Economic growth, social development and climate action are heavily dependent on investments in infrastructure, sustainable industrial development and technological progress.
Global manufacturing, an engine of economic growth, has been steadily declining due to tariffs and trade tensions; airline industry is facing steepest decline in its history with 51% drop in airline passengers; basic infrastructure like roads, information and communication technologies, sanitation, electrical power and water remains scarce in developing countries. Failing to improve above could translate into poor health care, inadequate sanitation and limited access to education.
Inclusive and sustainable industrialization, together with innovation and infrastructure, can unleash dynamic and competitive economic forces that generate employment and income. They play a key role in introducing and promoting new technologies, facilitating international trade and enabling the efficient use of resources.
EUTEC Chamber calls for action among technology forces on establishing standards and regulations that ensure companies’ projects are sustainably managed and using our networking to promote sustainable growth and prioritize the SDGs. The price is heavy if we do not act now! #UNSDGGoal9 Industries, Innovation and Infrastructure
