- STRATEGIC VISION OF THE GFVC AFRICA

AFRICA'S ONE AND ONLY INTEGRATED GFVC INFRASTRUCTURE FOR INDUSTRIALIZATION

THE INDUSTRIALIZATION MODEL

The GFVC AFRICA industrialization model is a response to the Continent's challenge demands; missing integrated industrialization development ecosystem and a non-political global voice for the Pan-African Fashion Value Chain; and industry 4.0 disruptions. The model was designed to grow and unlock the value chain's full industrialization benefits as well as to create new value. It carries, to varying degrees, opportunities for new local activities, millions of jobs, and corporate profits as well as the associated technology diffusion and opportunities to generate public revenues. A successful integration into the GFVC AFRICA, through the highly anticipated SMART GFVC AFRICA SUMMIT launch and any other platform that the Commission decides to use, is an opportunity for each Pan-African state to seize a bigger share of these benefits and accelerate its industrialization with the support of this resilient global infrastructure.

THE FRAMEWORK 

The GFVC AFRICA Ecosystem' high-wage and high-road single economy that does not leave behind Africa's economically distressed  communities and workers, is a continental framework for implementation, monitoring and evaluation of our common aspirations.

The fundamental need for industrialization on the African continent has been explicitly and repeatedly addressed by the UN General Assembly. Examples include the third industrial development decade for Africa that was adopted in the UN general Assembly1 (A/RES/70/293) on 25 July 2016 - reaffirming the importance of supporting Africa’s industrialization efforts on its path towards inclusive and sustainable economic growth and accelerated development. Other examples include the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
