Launch of Africa-wide Country Profiles on 3 April 2016 - An invitation
Streamed live on April 3, 2016
Those who control the numbers, control the narrative. Without numbers and vital statistics, development planning becomes a matter of guesswork. The realization of Africa’s development goals will very much depend on getting the numbers right; both ECA and Africa understand this.
Against this backdrop, the ECA will launch twenty maiden Country Profiles envisioned as a valuable and unique source of comparative data to aid strategic planning by member States.
The Country Profiles offer an independent narrative of Africa’s economic and social development experience and prospects, provide assessments focusing on policy analysis, and countries’ move towards regional integration and economic transformation. The Country Profiles also provide a quality assessment of economic forecasting for featured countries.
Countries featured in the March 2016 launch include: Botswana, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Ivory Coast, Egypt, Guinea, Kenya, Lesotho, Morocco, Namibia, Niger, Republic of Congo, Rwanda, Sao Tome and Principe, Senegal, Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Over the course of biennium 2016-2017, Country Profiles will be published on all 54 countries of the continent.
The event is open to all delegates, Time: 9:30 to 11:00, Venue: CR6, April 3, 2016
