The 6th Session of the Economic Commission for Africa decided that the report of the West Africa Coordination Mission (e/CN. 14/246) should be examined by the Bamako Conference and that, in addition revised proposals should be prepared for coordinated industrial development, drawn up in the light of further studies subsequently carried out and comments by governments. It should be recalled that a Conference held in Lagos (see below) had already requested a meeting on industrial coordination in West Africa to be held in 1964. The purpose of this note is first to recall briefly the origin of preparations made for the Conference secondly, to set out briefly the guiding principles adopted in the formulation of a scheme of coordinated industrial development thirdly, to present in summary form revised proposals for coordinated industrial development (with appropriate cross references to other documents); and finally, to put forward suggestions for further action.
