Africa: a continent in a deep transformation.
Subject Description (African Institutions are Leading the Transformation of Africa).
Since the creation of the Organisation of African Unity (OAU), now called the African Union, African political
leaders are moving irreversibly towards full economic integration, with the aim of creating the African Continental Free Trade Area (1 billion people, GDP
combined: 1.2 trillion) consisting of fifty-four African countries.
While this goal is very complex (e.g., intra-African trade represents only 10% of the total African trade) and will require substantial investments (especially in infrastructure); they are taking
decisive steps to achieve it.
Some people are talking about “Africa as emerging continent.”
Although we believe it is premature to consider the African continent as emerging market (although many countries are already emerging economies, in fact, South Africa is a member of the BRICS), rather we can affirm that Africa is the next “frontier market.”
To achieve this vision of a “United Africa”, four African institutions are playing a fundamental role.
The “African Union” establishes the political vision. The NEPAD is the executing
agency of the African Union. The Economic Commission for Africa (United Nations)
is responsible among other things to organise all the information necessary to achieve African Integration. The African Development Bank is primarily responsible for financing and supporting development projects in Africa.
The African Union has agreed the “Agenda 2063: the future we want for Africa”
an essential document to understanding the vision of the African leaders.
Knowing these institutions (*), its operation, its programs and the information
they provide is vital to comprehend the profound transformation taking place in Africa.
(*) The Regional Economic Communities
also play a fundamental role (analysed in another course).
