Sintesi: Politiche per realizzare la trasformazione produttiva in Africa

La pubblicazione Le dinamiche di sviluppo dell’Africa 2019 prende in esame le politiche destinate a favorire la trasformazione produttiva e ad aiutare i leader africani a raggiungere gli obiettivi dell’Agenda 2063 dell’Unione africana. Il primo capitolo analizza il potenziale di trasformazione produttiva dell’Africa e le misure adottate per sfruttare queste opportunità. L’edizione 2019 propone tre principali aree di intervento per trasformare le imprese africane in un mondo che cambia. I cinque capitoli regionali del rapporto illustrano importanti differenze nella trasformazione produttiva tra l’Africa meridionale, centrale, orientale, settentrionale e occidentale e propongono misure d’intervento specifiche per ciascuna regione. Il rapporto mette a disposizione dei decisori africani uno strumento aggiornato per il dialogo sulle politiche da seguire e sulle riforme a livello nazionale, a livello delle comunità economiche regionali e a livello panafricano.
