The tenth meeting of the Conference of African Ministers of Industries held in Dakar, Senegal, in July 1991, adopted in its programme the Second Industrial Development Decade for Africa(IDDA), which was subsequently adopted by the General Assembly in 1992. At the national level, the programme recommends the restructuring of the industrial sector in order to promote the goals of independent integrated and self-sustaining national economy with forward and backward linkages within and among sectors, especially between agriculture and industry, with a view to laying foundation for new industries based on domestic natural resources and increased transformation of local raw materials. This position is also emphasized by the Lagos Plan of Action which calls for attainment of self-reliance; also by the Abuja Treaty which interalia calls for increased self-reliance and promotion of indigenous self sustained development. The report is presented in four main parts. In addition to the introduction, consisting of the background and purpose of the study, Chapter I presents Industrial Review of Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), Chapter II, Country Industrial Priorities containing Structure, Performance, Structural Adjustments Programmes and Sectorial Priorities, Chapter III reviews Sub-regional Organization which includes regional organization i.e. SADC, PTA, KBO and OIC. Chapter IV covers financial resources needs and possibilities. Chapter V attempts to make some conclusions and recommendations.
