Promoting the Programme for Country Partnership (PCP) model and industrial investment in Africa

The Fifth ISID Forum, co-organized by UNIDO and the Government of Senegal, took place in Dakar, Senegal, on 14 and 15 November 2016. The Forum presented the experience and results of the PCP implementation in the pilot countries − Ethiopia, Peru and Senegal − to sensitize African countries to the principles of inclusive and sustainable industrial development. The Forum also discussed some of the challenges impeding Africa’s industrialization and highlighted the importance of regional integration. In this regard, the Forum presented an Action Plan for the replication and dissemination of the PCP model across West Africa.

Around 400 participants attended the forum, including high-level representatives from African governments, international and regional financial institutions, technical and financial development partners, and the private sector.
