The aim of this note is (a) To draw attention once more to the adverse effect of low productivity in the use of resources in African economies, and consequently to the need for positive action to be taken on a sustained basis aimed at securing a constant increase in the level of productivity in the use of resources, at the individual, enterprise, organization and national levels, including the adoption of appropriate measures for promoting productivity development. (b) To draw attention to the Asian experience in productivity development and the role being played by the Asian Productivity Organization (APO) in fostering the spread of productivity development programmes and the application of productivity raising techniques and technology in its member States through co operative effort. (c) To ascertain whether the Technical Committee of Experts considers productivity development particularly vital to Africa's agricultural and industrial growth and to the competitive position in world markets of its products and would therefore wish ECA, in collaboration with other appropriate organizations, to explore the feasibility of initiating a regional effort for the promotion of productivity development in member States.
