  • Description

    A TWO-WEEK CONFERENCE OF WAYS OF SPEEDING UP AFRICAN INDUSTRIAL PLANS OPENED IN CAIRO YESTERDAY (THURSDAY). TWENTY-ONE AFRICAN COUNTRIES ARE ATTENDING THE CONFERENCE WHICH HAS BEEN ORGANISED BY THE UNITED NATIONS ECONOMIC COMMISSION FOR AFRICA IN COLLABORATION WITH THE U.N. CENTRE FOR INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENT. THE CONFERENCE IS STUDYING AFRICAN INDUSTRIAL POTENTIALITIES AND EXPLORING POSSIBILITIES OF CO-OPERATION.

    THE CONFERENCE WAS OPENED BY THE UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC'S DEPUTY PREMIER FOR INDUSTRY, DR. MUSTAPHA KHALIL, WHO WAS ELECTED CHAIRMAN. ADDRESSING THE DELEGATES, MR. TOM MBOYA, THE KENYAN MINISTER FOR ECONOMIC PLANNING AND DEVELOPMENT, SAID AFRICANS MUST REJECT THE ARGUMENT THAT THE FUTURE OF THE CONTINENT LAY ONLY IN AGRICULTURE AND ALSO THE IDEA THE THAT TIME WAS NOT RIPE FOR INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENT IN AFRICAN COUNTRIES.

    HE SAID THE CONVENING OF THE CONFERENCE ILLUSTRATED THE RADICAL CHANGE IN OUTLOOK ABOUT ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT IN AFRICA IN RECENT YEARS. THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THE UNITED NATIONS ORGANISATION FOR ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT IN AFRICA HAD PLACED THE SEAL OF INTERNATIONAL APPROVAL ON THIS AIM.

    INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENT PLANS, SAID MR. MBOYA, HAD SO FAR BEEN DRAWN UP IN ISOLATION. IT SHOULD BE BORNE IN MIND THAT SOME PROJECTS WERE NOT FEASIBLE ON THE NATIONAL SCALE, BUT FEASIBLE IF UNDERTAKEN BY GROUPS OF COUNTRIES, HE SAID.
