TThe Statement was given at the intergovernmental meeting of African experts on aspects of technology development in Africa, Arusha from October 3-8, 1977. The meeting was originally intended to serve as part of the preparations for the establishment of an African Centre for the Transfer, Adaptation and Development of Technology. Its origin lies in resolution 87 taken at UNCTAD IV in May 1976, requesting ECA and the OAU, in collaboration with UNCTAD, UNIDO, UNESCO, FAO and WIPO and other interested agencies to call meeting of African plenipotentiaries to establish the Centre.
