The Office has the mission of contributing to the industrial development and economic growth of developing countries, identifying and mobilizing technical, financial and managerial resources in order to achieve employment, economic competitiveness and environmental protection.

This commitment is mainly based on promotion of industrial partnerships, on improvement of technological and qualitative standards and on capacity-building to partner institutions.
