UN Africa Industrialization Day

Together, we can make a difference to Africa’s sustainable industrialization strategy

Today, 20th November, marks the UN’s Africa Industrialization Day which focuses on boosting regional economic transformation and sustainable development.

Africa is home to over 1.2 billion people – representing 16% of the world’s population - yet Africa accounts for less than 2% of international trade and global manufacturing. With increasing populations and rapid urbanization across the continent, we all need to play our part in equipping Africa with the power and automation technologies to drive industry forward in a safe and sustainable way.

ABB has been working in Africa for a century and remains committed to helping Africa boost their economy through sustainable industrialization. Today we join the UN in stressing the importance and benefits of industrial development and celebrating the contribution we have been privileged to make in Africa so far.
