A quarterly magazine "MakingIt Industry for Development N.23"
In today’s interdependent global economy, Africa remains a weak link. If the world is to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, thereby completing the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, it must help Africa accelerate its development by promoting rapid and responsible industrialization.
To fulfill its economic potential, Africa must industrialize. The importance of this has been stressed repeatedly at recent international forums, including the Sixth Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD VI), and the G20 summit in Hangzhou, China.
This issue features;
- Lessons learnt: How can the Third Industrial Decade for Africa be different from the first two? asks Charles Arthur
- The future of my Africa: Youth can drive the green industrialization of the continent, says Musopa Kalenga
