The United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) will organize on September 1-2, 2015 at the Hotel Belle Côte in Abidjan (Côte d’Ivoire) a meeting for the focal points of the eight (8) countries of West Africa for which the development of country profiles was programmed for the biennial period of 2014-2015. This meeting, which will gather together all19 Focal Points, is explained basically by the need to have a regular supply of reliable statistics in order to understand the economic situation of West African countries and to make relevant decisions that will enable countries to undertake and amplify the structural transformations of their economies. To materialize this commitment, the ECA has decided for the years to come to organize its statistical activities around the regular production of economic and social reports by country called “Country Profiles”.
