dc.description.abstractAfrican ministers of finance, planning, economic development and integration, meeting in Marrakech, Morocco, for the fifty-second session of the commission, having deliberated on the theme “Fiscal policy, trade and the private sector in a digital era: a strategy for Africa”. The gross domestic product of Africa grew at a rate of 3.2 per cent in 2018, down from 3.4 per cent in 2017, and that economic growth is expected to recover to 3.4 per cent in 2019 owing, primarily, to strengthened global demand for African products, rising commodity prices, robust private consumption and sustained investments in infrastructure. African economies face major financing gaps and challenges in the mobilization of domestic resources, despite the implementation of several fiscal and budgetary reforms. digitization may enhance fiscal policy performance and development finance by increasing domestic revenue generation and allocation and reducing the cost of revenue collection, and by facilitating trade and private sector investment and development that foster growth and job creation and reduce gender inequality. The need to increase significantly the availability of high-quality and timely data with a view to supporting fiscal policy, trade and private sector development in the digital era and strengthening the implementation of national development plans, the 2030 agenda for sustainable development and agenda 2063: The Africa We Want, of the African Union.en
