The Economic Commission for African (ECA) and the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) have teamed up to help develop the services trade in Africa by promoting integration into regional value chains. The two UN entities agree that integration into higher value-added activities of global and regional value chains is crucial for development outcomes for the continent and will go a long way in helping the continent realize its targets of the Sustainable Development Goals. In a joint project, UNCTAD and UNECA are providing support to member States to strengthen the capacities of national and regional policymakers and stakeholders to measure and analyze value chains and design services policies aimed at enabling higher integration into global and regional value chains. The project targets three services sectors that are critical for enabling trade and fostering inclusiveness, in particular in relation to women and youth, namely: infrastructure services (transport and energy), financial services and tourism services.
