GFVC AFRICA COMMISSION OVERVIEW
The COMMISSION is a politically independent Institution of the Global Fashion Value Chain Federation of Africa and its constituent entities that make up the organization’s executive arm.
The entire ecosystem infrastructure is established to: address Africa’s under-development status; lack of strong independent development institutions and governance that has led to the challenges faced by the economy and left-behind communities (agriculture, manufacturing, mining; and creative); enhance NEPAD's capacities to improve impact on common Goals of the Agenda 2063 - by decolonizing, protecting and building a highly competitive single GFVC economy that can achieve balanced economic growth and price stability, social progress, environmental protection, and economic freedom for all Africans across the socioeconomic strata.
