Zambia will host the 20thsession of the Intergovernmental Committee of Experts (ICE) for Southern Africa. The ICE, under the theme ‘Making natural resources work for Inclusive growth and sustainable development in Southern Africa’ will take place under the auspices of the Zambian Government from 13 to 14 March, 2014 in the City of Livingstone, Zambia’s Tourist Capital.
The ICE is a UN General Assembly Policy Sub-Organ of African Ministers of Finance, Planning and Economic Development established to provide a Forum for engaging member states’ senior policy makers on policy and programme related matters in each of the five sub-regions of Africa.
Eleven SADC & COMESA Member States are expected to participate in the meeting which convenes yearly to discuss topical economic and social developments in the region. The meeting will focus on inclusive growth owing to the region’s impressive economic performance, its bountiful natural resources and how this could be translated into employment and sustainable development.
