About the Specialized Technical Committee On Finance, Monetary Affairs, Economic Planning And Integration

The African Union Commission Specialised Technical Committees (STC) on Finance, Monetary Affairs, Economic Planning and Integration is the leading Conference for African ministers responsible for finance, economy, planning, integration and economic development, and central bank governors, to discuss matters about the development of Africa. This STC is also charged with following up on implementation of the integration agenda for the continent.

The AU Commission led by the Department Economic Development, Trade, Industry And Mining Department (ETIM), is organizing Extraordinary Specialized Technical Committee (STC) on Finance, Monetary Affairs, Economic Planning and Integration convened under the theme, “Developing integrated and complementary value chains for sustainable recovery and reinforcing operationalization of the AfCFTA”. The theme is relevant in driving the realization of Africa’s Agenda 2063, particularly, “Aspiration 1” which seeks a prosperous Africa based on inclusive growth and sustainable development.

The meeting will address, among others, the following key issues:

  • Global Value Chains (GVCs) Conceptual framework;
  • Regional and Global Value Chains in Africa;
  • Opportunities and challenges for Value Chain Integration in Africa;
  • Developing integrated and complementary continental value chains;
  • Digitalize African Value Chains;
  • Reinforcing Public and Private Finance for Investment in African value chains.

The Ministerial segment of the STC will be preceded by the Experts meeting that will discuss these issues and the implications they hold for the continent, and present the Outcomes to the Ministers to consider and provide policy direction. As we move towards building more resilient economies in 2021, the timing of this STC meeting is crucial for the Ministers to discuss and agree on the way forward on these critical issues.
