Early in March this year, I commissioned a task force to review the strategic direction, programmes, organizational structure, management and administrative processes of the Commission. The task force completed its work and submitted its recommendations in June 2006. The outcome of the review exercise was fully endorsed by the African Union Summit of African Heads of State and Government held in Banjul, Gambia on 1 and 2 July 2006. The Summit further reaffirmed the role of the Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) as a key and necessary United Nations institution in Africa to assist and facilitate the work of the African Union Commission (AUC) and the Regional Economic Communities (RECs). A major outcome of the Review is the repositioning of ECA to better address Africa’s development challenges and the resultant reprioritization and refocusing of the Commission’s work programme.
