Overview :

The African Member States, through the African Union, adopted a strategic framework – known as Agenda 2063 – that outlines their socio-economic vision and aspirations over the next several decades, and has been designed in alignment with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and its Agenda 2030 adopted internationally.

Chief among its priorities is the need to structurally and productively transform African economies, develop and industrialize them accordingly. Under the leadership of the African Union Commission, the productivity agenda is being pushed, particularly through development of natural resources and promotion of pan-African enterprises. The advancement of this agenda, would, among others, strengthen the competitiveness of the continent’s economy in the global economy and address a number of challenges, including decent employment creation and the fight against poverty, which are closely linked.

It is against this background that the African Union Commission, in partnership with the United Nations Office for South-South Cooperation – Africa (UNOSSC-Africa ) and the Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie (OIF), plans to organize the 11th edition of the « African Private Sector Forum » from November 6 to 8, 2019 in Antananarivo, Madagascar, under the theme of « Transforming African economies through the mobilization of African private sector and the capitalization of experiences from other parts of the world « .

To lay the groundwork of the eleventh African Private Sector Forum, the AUC, with the support of the UNOSSC-Africa, is therefore, looking for a suitable individual International consultant.
