RABAT, Morocco — Cooperation for the development of trade in Africa was at the heart of the discussions on Tuesday during a meeting between Mrs. Lilia Hachem Naas, Director of the ECA Office in North Africa and Hani Sonbol, CEO of the International Islamic Trade Finance Corporation (ITFC). New consultations are planned in the near future. Established in 1958 by the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations (ECOSOC), the Economic Commission for Africa is one of the five regional commissions of the United Nations. ECA's mandate is to support the economic and social development of its member states, promote regional integration and promote international cooperation for Africa's development. Its North Africa Office's mission is to support the development of seven countries (Algeria, Egypt, Libya, Morocco, Mauritania, Tunisia and Sudan) by helping them formulate and implement policies and programs that can contribute to their transformation, economic and social development.
