The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) continued to promote the sustainable industrial development of developing countries and countries with economies in transition. As a global forum on industrialization, UNIDO facilitated the spread of industrial information, knowledge, technology and investment. The Industrial Development Board, at its twenty-fourth session (Vienna, 19-22 June), considered, among other things, UNIDO's programme and budget for the 2002-2003 biennium, new initiatives for funds mobilization, field representation and its contribution to technical cooperation delivery, and environment-related activities. The ninth session of the General Conference (Vienna, 3-7 December) adopted the programme and budget for 2002-2003 and reappointed the incumbent Director-General, Carlos Magariños, for a second term. The adoption of a resolution on the medium-term programme framework (MTPF) 2002-2005 placed emphasis on technical cooperation and confirmed UNIDO's global forum function. MTPF represented the response of UNIDO's 1997 Business Plan [YUN 1997, p. 1564] to the lessons learned from the process of transformation within UNIDO, in the UN system and in the development community at large. The Conference also agreed to deposit with the United Nations Secretary-General UNIDO's instrument of accession to the 1986 Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties between States and International Organizations or between International Organizations [YUN 1986, p. 1007]. The Convention offered a specific legal framework governing formal treaties between international organizations and States and would thus provide stability and predictability in the best interest of UNIDO treaty relations. UNIDO membership remained at 169 in 2001.
