The origin of this conference lies in the preliminary mission in 1963 on Industrial Coordination in East Africa, which was followed by a decision taken by the East African countries during the Sixth Session to hold a meeting on Economic Coordination in Lusaka. This decision was confirmed at the Seventh Session. Meanwhile work was put in hand in 1964. The Seventh Session-also decided that similar meetings should be held in each of the other three sub-regions and these will be convened in Leopoldville, Tangier and Niamey in February, April and May, respectively of next year.
