The forthcoming 2011 edition of the Economic Report on Africa (ERA), the annual flagship publication of the Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) and the African Union, will examine the role of the state in governing development, triggering economic transformation, and as a catalyst for sustainable development, according to a statement from ECA’s Economic Development and NEPAD Division (EDND). The statement says the anticipated report will also provide an opportunity for examining the record of the state in promoting development in Africa, share concrete success stories in Africa and elsewhere as well as recommend concrete actions for sustaining development and promoting economic transformation on the continent. It says the ultimate goal of the report, on the theme “The role of the state in economic transformation’, is to provide evidence-based and policy-oriented framework for enhancing the role of the state in performing the key tasks necessary for economic transformation in Africa: planning of the development process and the formulation and implementation of relevant development plans and policies.
