It will be organised by the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), in collaboration with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Regional Integration and International Trade, and the Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Consumer Protection. Some 70 participants from both the public and private sectors are expected to attend.
Topics such as Structural Transformation and Industrial Policy, Industrial Policy in a Digital World, Industrial Policy in Open Economies, and Regional Value Chains in SADC will be covered during the workshop.
