The Economic Report on Africa 2014 was launched in Yaounde by the country’s Minister Delegate in the Ministry of the Economy, Planning and Regional Development. The report calls for the adoption by African states of industrial policies that are germane to their own local contexts and the creation of strong institutions with the mandate of formulating and pushing through such policies. During the launch, connections were made between the Economic Report on Africa and a new tool developed by ECA to help African governments achieve socially inclusive transformation, styled the African Social Development Index. ECA plans to continue dialogue with its member states in the coming months to build capacities in order for countries to own and appropriate the Index and subsequently strive to achieve the social, economic and political inclusion of their societies.
