    Background: The Executive Committee of the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (ECA), has held an extraordinary session to consider and adopt a secretarial report relating to the implementation of recommendations concerning the new international economic order for Africa.

    The meeting which began on Tuesday (17 February) is being held at ECA headquarters in Addis Ababa.

    The report under discussion covers a wide range of topics, among them the restructuring of international trade, transfer of resources, technical assistance and economic co-operation.

    It also reviews the existing socio-economic trends in Africa and puts forward suggestions aimed at tackling the obstacles hindering the rapid economic development of the continent.

    The report puts forward ideas and guidelines to be followed by African governments and other concerned and interested parties with a view to fully implementing proposals relating to the New International Economic Order adopted by the 6th and 7th special sessions of the United Nations General Assembly.

    Introducing the report, the Executive Secretary of ECA, Adebayo Adedeji, stressed the need for a new strategic approach towards national and regional economic problems, the solution of which, he said, was self-reliance, greater, meaningful and effective intra-African co-operation and increased co-operation with other third world countries, the advanced countries and the socialist countries.
