Africa Industrialization Day was established in 1990 and is the day when a large number of African governments and organisations gather to examine various different ways to stimulate the industrialisation process in Africa. This special day attracts a large amount of attention from around the world and special seminars, meetings and other types of events are held throughout Africa.
Although it can be seen that industrialisation in Africa is gradually increasing, in is significantly behind many other parts of the world, which has an impact on Africa’s development and its ability to interact on a global level. Many of the events that take place on Africa Industrialization Day are attended by national leaders and representatives. On this day, effort is made to bring together the leaders of as many African countries as possible so that they are able to strive for common goals that benefit industrialisation in Africa as a whole.
