Africa’s employers made key contributions to the second African Regional Meeting of the EU Policy Forum on Development in Dakar on 3-4 October 2016, ensuring the voice of business informed the deliberations.

The Policy Forum on Development (PFD) was launched by the European Commission in November 2013 after a consultation process with civil society organisations and local authorities from all regions of the world. Its overarching goal is to provide a space for EC-level dialogue that ensures effective multi-stakeholder consultation and contribution to EU development policies and programmes.

The Dakar event provided a further venue for employers, represented by Business Africa, to participate in the dynamic discussions and debates with their perspectives on how the involvement of the private sector is integral to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Business Africa's Secretary General Jacqueline Mugo reaffirmed the commitment of employers from their regions to play their part in the implementation of the 2030 Development Agenda. Business Africa which is the continental voice of Africa’s employers has been increasingly successful in securing the private sector's inclusion in these multi-stakeholder dialogues.

The Dakar meeting also provided an opportunity to prepare the agenda for the next global PFD meeting which will take place in Brussels in March 2017.
