Jostein Lohr Hauge from Centre of Development Studies in Cambridge University is going to share his thoughts about African industry development policy. Jostein will introduce the report “Transformative Industrial Policy for Africa”, published by the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa, which he co-authored with Ha-Joon Chang, and Muhammad Irfan.

African countries are in the process of upgrading and promoting the development of higher-productivity sectors, including manufacturing and high-end services. One of the key elements is the need to expand the industrial sector, which provides opportunities for employment generation, integration and value addition for boosting export earnings and income generation.

This specialized report is intended as a contribution to the thinking process of how to conceptualize and implement transformative industrial policies. It aims to serve as a guide for supporting member states and provide concrete strategies for the integration of industrial policies into national development plans across the continent.
