At the turn of the new millennium, UNIDO and the government of Lebanon signed their first medium-term cooperation strategy agreement, focusing on industrial partnership and investment, enhancing the quality and safety of food products made in Lebanon, and strengthening industrial infrastructure, cleaner technologies and environmental protection.UNIDO shaped its strategy to consolidate Lebanon's economic recovery by enhancing the competitiveness of the industrial sector in order for it to access global markets.Examples include helping micro, small and medium enterprises and cooperatives in the Bekaa Valley and north Lebanon to manufacture products capable of competing on the international market; greening industries and reducing their production costs with innovative production technologies through the Lebanese Cleaner Production Center, in partnership with the Environment Ministry and the Industrial Research Institute; and delivering training and business counseling services on enterprise creation, growth and investment promotion.Over the last 50 years, UNIDO was on the side of Lebanon to promote environmentally friendly industrialization for poverty reduction and inclusive globalization.
