A report on UNCTAD’s activities in support of Africa is prepared every year and presented to an executive session of the Trade and Development Board.
The report provides an overview of research and analysis being undertaken by UNCTAD with regard to African development, as well as a summary of specific activities, including advisory services and technical cooperation, in each sector that falls under UNCTAD’s mandate.
This report complements and updates the information in document TD/B/EX(57)/2, which was submitted to the fifty-seventh executive session of the Board in June 2013.
Under this agenda item, a panel will be convened on the topic of monetary unions and regional trade in Africa. An interactive discussion will follow.
