Deputy Chairperson, I move without notice:
That the Council-
1) notes and debates Africa Industrialisation Day, which takes place on 20 November in terms of the United Nation's General Assembly proclamation and resolution 44/237 of 22 December 1989;
2) further notes that Africa Industrialisation Day is intended to mobilise the commitment of the international community to the industrialisation of Africa and also serves as a reminder that more than 30 of the world's 48 least developed countries are located in Africa; and
3) acknowledges that Africa's economic emergence and transition from a continent of low-income into middle-income economies, requires transforming the economic structure from predominantly agrarian and extractive activities to more vibrant and value adding industrial sectors like processing and manufacturing.
Motion agreed to in accordance with section 65 of the Constitution.
