The Strategic Vision of the new ECA Trade and Regional Integration Division (TRID)would, therefore, need to be positioned in the context of further reforms that the United Nations Secretary-General intends to undertake within the broader reforms of the United Nations System, as well as in the context of implementation of the various recent UN initiatives on African countries. Accordingly, the activities of the new Division would need to contribute not only to Africa's attainment of the "Millennium Development Goals (MDGs)" but also in moving forward the process of implementation of the New Partnership for Africa's Development (NEPAD) and the African Union (AU). As indicated above, globalization and its impact on African economies as well as modalities for the effective integration of these economies in the global trading system will need to be among the priorities of the United Nations System.
