This paper presented at the ECA/Dalhousie University Conference on the Lagos Plan of Action and Africa’s future International Relations: projections and implications for policy-makers, in Canada, from November 2-4, 1984. The objective of this paper is a modest one of providing some preliminary analytical overview of development since April 1980 and a tentative prognostication of the future. The paper discuses about the background to the Lagos Plan of Action, and the Monrovia strategy. In the concluding remarks, The Lagos Plan of 9 Action remains as valid to Africa’s development in spite of the slow implementation process, due to economic crisis that has gripped African since then and partly a turnaround in economic policy and strategy.
