Ad hoc expert group meeting on the African mining vision
Status and prospects of the implementation of the African mining vision in Central Africa
Tuesday, December 13, 2016 to Wednesday, December 14, 2016
Brazzaville, Congo

The main objective of the meeting is to consider and enrich the report of the study on “the status and prospects of the implementation of the African mining vision in Central Africa” prepared by the ECA. Thanks to preliminary work by the ECA, the African Development Bank (AfDB) and their partners, the said Vision was adopted in February 2009 by African Union Heads of State and Government. It is predicated on the premise that foreign direct investments in the mining industry do not really benefit African countries and their citizenry.

What then is to be done to enable mineral resource exploitation foster broad-based development and structural transformation of Africa that benefits all and sundry?
