LIBREVILLE, 7 February 2019 – The closing ceremony of the TII projects focusing respectively on industrial upgrading and quality infrastructure development in Central Africa – namely the “Industrial Restructuring and Upgrading Programme for Central Africa (PRMN) “and the “Quality Infrastructure Programme for Central Africa (PIQAC)“  – was held from 6-7 February 2019 in Libreville, Gabon.

The final Regional Steering Committee provided an opportunity for the stakeholders of these projects, which were implemented starting from December 2014 by the UNIDO TII department with funds from the European Union (EU), to discuss the results of the initiatives as well as to explore a potential follow-up phase to both projects.

“It is crucial for the region and for Gabon to receive such a support to improve the competitiveness of the region and its overall economic situation,” said Carmen Ndaot, Gabon's Minister of Industry and National Entrepreneurship, during her opening remarks.
