dc.description.abstractThe thirty-seventh meeting of the committees of experts of the economic commission for Africa conference of African ministers of finance, planning and economic development was held as the theme of the African continental free trade area. The agreement marked an important step towards the creation of an African economic community, one of the major aspirations of the Abuja Treaty, and that it also offered an opportunity for the continent to reduce its dependence on official development assistance and to enhance domestic resource mobilization as the engine of its economic growth. The agreement provided opportunities to wider public sector reforms and create more fiscal space, for the continent to mobilize internal resources to meet the targets of the 2030 Agenda and Agenda 2063. To that end, African countries needed to design long-term strategies and prudent macroeconomic frameworks. Despite the priority already attached to infrastructure development, much remained to be done and full advantage must be taken of the African continental free trade area, to which ECA was fully committed. The experts adopted the following agenda: Election of the Bureau and adoption of the agenda and program of work, Overview of recent economic and social developments in Africa, Assessment of progress on regional integration in Africa, Presentation on the theme of the fifty-first session of the conference of African ministers of finance, planning and economic development: “African continental free trade area: creating fiscal space for jobs and economic diversification”.en
