AIDA – Accelerated Industrial Development for Africa

The leaders of Africa have in recent years shown commitment to the industrialization of the continent in both the short and long-term, and have taken a number of major initiatives to meet the challenges of development as evidenced by their decision to dedicate the January 2008 Summit to the theme: “the industrialization of Africa.” The dedication of the Summit to this theme shows the great importance and recognition that the African leaders attach to industrial development on the continent. During the Summit, the Heads of State and Government endorsed and adopted the Plan of Action for the accelerated industrial development for Africa and directed the Commission of the African Union to speedily operationalize it in collaboration with the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) and other development partners. Pursuant to this directive, the Commission of the African Union, in collaboration with the above partners, developed a Strategy for the implementation of the Plan of Action, which contains seven Programme Clusters, namely, Industrial Policy and Institutional Direction; Upgrading Production and Trade Capacities; Promote Infrastructure and Energy for Industrial Development; Human Resource Development for Industry; Industrial Innovation Systems, R&D and Technology Development; Financing and Resource Mobilization; and Sustainable Development.
