Manufacturing

Overview

  • JOBS

    Creating opportunities for workers to move from informal to formal employment

  • PRODUCTIVITY

    Promoting competitive industries and higher incomes

  • SUSTAINABILITY

    Helping companies reduce costs and enhance environmental and social sustainability

 

Countries which have successfully developed and reduced poverty over the past century have done so largely by developing their manufacturing sectors. In most countries, manufacturing generates more economic activity per dollar of production than any other business sector.

Manufacturers directly create jobs across a range of skill levels, enabling people, especially women, to move from informal work to formal employment with benefits, such as more security, better pay, social insurance and access to financial services. Manufacturing creates opportunity across industry value chains by increasing demand for raw materials, energy, construction, technology, and services from a broad array of supplying industries in the economy.
