The establishment of multinational industrial enterprises is a recent factor in the industrial development of the African Continent. This was the case from the second half of the 70s. This was not necessarily due to a deliberate sub-regional co-operation or industrial development policy. Most of such industries were as a result of understanding between two or several countries for the exploitation of a given raw material or services. The aim of this study is to make : i) an assessment of industrial co-operation carried out by the IGOs and States and ; ii) proposals to revitalize the multinational projects and enterprises in the industrial field by placing particular emphasis on the role of States, IGOs and economic operators.
