FRANCE: The world is aware that a large number of countries do not have the adequate infrastructure to maintain an industry that can provide their citizens and all people with a good use of their resources. But, despite this, governments do nothing about it, since each country focuses only on its own improvement, without realizing that this will only be achieved with everyone's progress together. In the case of developing countries, they need the support of those nations that have a much stronger and more stable economy, since one of the reasons why they do not achieve industrialization is because they depend on developed countries and that does not allow them to grow.


The French Republic strongly believes that there…

COLOMBIA: The Republic of Colombia believes that developed nations (DN) hold the possibility of helping in achieving Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) as, due to the history, context and implications of such on Least Developed Nations (LDN) the industrial panorama of said countries would benefit greatly from multilateral cooperation.


The Republic of Colombia, as a country, has experienced numerous events that presented themselves as obstacles to development in industry, innovation and infrastructure. Some of these challenges include the armed conflicts, present and noticeable through the 20th century, the primary-sector driven economy, and in more recent years the COVID-19 pandemic along with the food and energy crisis. The prior goes to show the diverse difficulties that LDNs have to deal with regarding…

The Republic of Finland has been aware of the several problems undeveloped countries face due to its condition so they cannot succeed in achieving industrialization. Mainly, the limitation of access to technology, capital and investment, and infrastructure makes the path more difficult for these countries. Acknowledging that 36% of the population, which lives in a less economically developed country has access to the internet, makes a significant gap in basic needs that need to be met for industrialization in this new century. Moreover, capital and investment is key for the economy to grow, meaning results in the process of industrialization in the LDCs countries. Nevertheless, there is a huge risk of capital flight in LDCs by the lack of “managerial…

ALGERIA:

Algeria believes there are various factors at play here. One of them is a nation's historical background, which affects its industrialization journey. Some countries had abundant resources over a long period, which enabled them to become developed nations. Unfortunately, most countries didn't have this advantage. Take Africa, for instance; many of its countries struggled due to resource scarcity, leading to poor infrastructure, limited technology, and human capital. This poses a significant challenge when attempting to boost industrialization.


The present situation is just as crucial as the past for industrialization. Many countries face contemporary issues that hinder their development, like corruption within governments and a shortage of skilled labor. Algeria firmly believes that these countries need assistance, and the larger…

BRAZIL:

The Federative Republic of Brazil has recognized that socio-political factors are the cause of a country's ability to industrialize itself, as any country without a stable government or head of state to push industrialization forward, will be unable to develop an industrially based economy; and, therefore, be unable to industrialize. This has been shown by many developing countries, as, specially in Africa and western Asia, states without stability and with other issues at hand, simply do not intend on pursuing industrialization; therefore, any attempt by anyone would be underfunded and underdeveloped; furthermore, taking into account that most of these countries have already economies based on farming, mining, etc; it seems unlikely that any risk like a shift in an…
