  18 Apr 2012 Foreword
OECD
The Africa Partnership Forum (APF) was established in 2003 following the G8 Summit in Evian, as a way of extending existing dialogue between G8 countries and New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD) to include Africa’s major bilateral and multilateral development partners. In 2005 APF members agreed to establish an OECD-hosted support unit to backstop ongoing monitoring and analytical work. The APF is a senior political forum for discussing and monitoring policy issues, strategies, priorities and commitments related to Africa’s development and the implementation of NEPAD programmes, in the wider context of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). The APF monitors commitments and tracks progress. Its members include all African NEPAD members plus key African institutions and other major development partners, which work together as equals in the Forum and ensure synergies and coherence with other international fora.

  03 Aug 2011 The interaction between the ship repair, ship conversion and shipbuilding industries
Özgur Umut Senturk
Shipyards can undertake a variety of activities, not all related to the construction of new vessels. While there are yards that are largely dedicated to new buildings, and others dedicated to ship repair and maintenance, in practice that distinction is blurred, as both activities can be undertaken in most yards. This report examines the interaction between these yards, in particular how feasible it is for yards to move from one activity to the other, or perhaps to engage in both at the same time. The relevance of this is that if there are few barriers for yards to move between activities, then this will have an impact on the availability of shipbuilding capacity to meet expansions or contractions of new-building demand.
