The declaration also requires us to import as many primary products as we can consume; such as fruit, meat, etc. During the 2018 Bundestag election campaign, Steve Campbell, federal secretary of the DLP, questioned Bill Shorten publicly about this. Mr Shorten, former secretary of the Australian Workers Union, ironically seemed very unaware of the Lima Declaration and, when pushed to do so on this issue, he refused to force the PLA to do anything as simple as reviewing Australian participation. The Declaration underlines the relevance of inclusive and sustainable industrial development as a basis for sustainable economic growth and encourages, in accordance with the processes defined by the UN General Assembly, to take due account of the issue in shaping the post-2015 development agenda. It is with this in mind that we will call on the Government and the Crossbenchers to verify Australia`s participation in order to immediately withdraw from the Lima Declaration in order to address both current and future job security and employment opportunities for the Australian workforce. “By integrating in a balanced manner the three dimensions of sustainable development – the economy, social affairs and the environment – we believe that effective measures for inclusive and sustainable industrial development should include improving productive capacities in a way that supports structural changes in the economy; promotes economic growth and the creation of decent jobs; increase productivity and the development, transfer and absorption of technology on mutually agreed terms; and supports related research and development. This is a 90% reduction in Australian production capacity and the loss of hundreds of thousands of jobs, all signed by the PLA with the continued support of liberals and nationals. The DLP believes that the original target of a 30% reduction in Australian production was far too high and that there were better opportunities to support developing countries. What has been true in the years since the LIMA Declaration was signed by the PLA is that the 30% target has actually exploded, with current estimates of over 90%. Almost 40 years ago, a UNIDO General Conference was held in Lima, which adopted a landmark document — the Lima Declaration on Industrial Development and Cooperation. I am honored that Peru today again receives high-level representatives from all UNIDO Member States and that once again a historic document is adopted Industry is at the center of any development path. . . .
