تحليل الواقع الصناعي من منظور إستراتيجي مدخل لتحقيق التنمية المستدامة في محافظة صلاح الدين
Salah Ulddin province’s industrial sector has suffered from the low levels of production, its low quality and its inability to be up to date, and sometimes totally isolated, with the trending technologies around the world. These issues are a direct result of the random (non-planned) economic policies in addition to the lack of continuous electricity energy, the high prices of fuel, the lack of security, the lack of economic hospitality, the flooding of consumer goods from neighbouring countries, the lack of necessary funding to develop private sector industries, the lack of technological development, the increased prices and low quality of raw materials in the domestic market, the lack of production integrity and the unnecessary long bureaucratic steps taken in registering companies for business. All of these issues led the industrial sector to play no role in the economic development of Salah Ulddin province or in its overall local income.
This study aims to show that it is possible to avoid these shortcomings by the transformation of the traditional management policies to sustainable development principles, which can be implemented by using the modern techniques that match the development of policies in other countries and also by providing the necessary management and legislation reforms that ensure the protection of exhaustible and non-exhaustible resources from the non-effective use. This is combined by providing sustainable steps for the studied resources based on the analysis of their strength and weaknesses through SWOC and TOWS analysis.
This study has highlighted many issues and challenges suffered by the studied resources and presented many solutions that can enable the governing bodies’ in-charge to prioritize and execute these solutions. This will also enable them to form national and local policies that are compatible to the new non-central management policies. These solutions are also helpful to establish sustainable development that uses resources but with protecting the rights of current and future generations and they provide the governing bodies with the will and power to create an effective sustainable development that is armoured by the public support and contribution. It is hoped for this study to shape a clear vision that can help the local governments (represented by governorate councils and bureaus) and their populations to investigate the effective ways of using local resources to support their economic development.
