Economic Report on Africa 2015: Industrializing Through Trade
Africa’s economic growth has remained strong, in spite of a global downturn in commodity prices. However, the continent’s social development lags behind, with high poverty and unemployment rates still prevalent. Although trade will continue to play an important role in the continent’s growth, economies need to be diversified to address inequality.
This event launches the 2015 UN Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) report Industrializing Through Trade, which examines policies necessary for inclusive growth, productivity and structural transformation.
The event will be followed by an open reception.
