The Economic Commission for Africa (Office for North Africa) launched its 31st Intergovernmental Committee of Experts (ICE) under the theme: “Green economy to speed up industrialization in North Africa”. During this ICE meeting, it will examine how green economy can help accelerate the transformation, improve the competitiveness of industrial fabrics and facilitate their integration in global value chains. Green economy is also about generating jobs, reducing poverty, social inequalities and improve the living conditions of populations. These objectives will require the establishment of strong synergies between national strategies and programs, especially in areas such as training, employment, innovation, trade and public-private partnerships.
