The Economic Commission for Africa is planning to hold the third African Development Forum (ADF-2001) this year on the theme of Regional Integration in Africa. One of the main objectives which led to the creation of the Sub regional Development Centres is "to serve as mobilizer of ideas and catalyst for promoting regional cooperation and integration, to facilitate networking and information exchange among development partners and to provide a link between ECA and the development partners in the sub regions." It is within this context that the Regional Cooperation and Integration Division (RCID) in collaboration with the SRDCs Coordination Unit (SRDCs-CU) invited all the SRDCs to the First Steering Committee meeting in Addis Ababa from 6 to 9 June 2001. The Director of SRDC-SA assigned me to participate on behalf of the Centre.
