President Brahim Ghali to attend AU Summit on Industrialization and Economic Diversification in Niger

Shahid Al-Hafed , November 23, 2022 (SPS) - The President of the Republic, the Secretary-General of the Polisario Front, Mr. Brahim Ghali, left today, Wednesday, to the Nigerian capital, Niamey, to attend the works of the African Union Extraordinary Summit on Industrialization, Economic Diversification, and the Free Trade Zone, scheduled to be held on November 25, 2022.

The African Union Summit on Industrialization and Economic Diversification will be convened under the theme “Industrializing Africa: Renewed commitment towards an Inclusive and Sustainable Industrialization and Economic Diversification.”

The Summit will be convened as part of the Africa Industrialization Week annual commemorative activities. Given the importance of industrialization and economic transformation in Africa, the 20th of every November is commemorated as the Africa Industrialization Day, adopted by the Assembly of Heads of State and Government of the Organization of African Unity in July 1989, in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

 The Africa Industrialization Day provides an opportunity to key stakeholders to reflect on Africa’s industrialization by looking at how the continent can change its current status quo. Since 2018, the Africa Industrialization Day has been commemorated with weeklong events, marking a departure from the one-day tradition, and which affords more time to reflect and accelerate actions towards Africa’s structural transformation, as an enabler to meet the objectives of Agenda 2063, and SDGs, 2030.

The President of the Republic is accompanied by an important delegation that includes Mohamed Salem Ould Salek, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Nana Labat El Rashid and Abdati Abrika Advisors to the Presidency, Laman Abaali ambassador to the African Union.
