Goals not met “It is a well-known reality that our continent, particularly sub-Saharan Africa, did not achieve the targets that were set in the MDGs.It was for this reason that we insisted that the Sustainable Development Goals [SDGs] should continue the unfinished business of the MDGs,” said Zuma.He said these constraints included inadequate infrastructure, high dependency on primary products, high exposure to commodity price volatility, limited investment in research and development, science, innovation and technology, low private sector investment and skills inadequacy.
We are therefore seriously concerned about the loss of resources of the continent through illicit financial flows.” The Joint African Union and UN Economic Commission for Africa's High-level Panel on Illicit Financial Flows from Africa estimates that illicit flows from Africa could be about billion dollars a year.
These include the New Partnership for Africa's Development, the Presidential Infrastructure Championing Initiative, the African Mining Vision, and the Programme for the Infrastructural Development of Africa,” said Zuma.
He said South Africa had put in place a National Development Plan which was aligned to AU Agenda 2063, as well as the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
“At the core of our development plan is the focus on poverty eradication and the upliftment of the standard of living of our people,” said Zuma, who was one of the speakers on the opening day of the assembly.
“We have an interest, therefore, in ensuring the full implementation of the SDGs, as we take forward the agenda of promoting Africa's sustainable development.“We have made significant strides in the past couple of decades in reversing the impact of underdevelopment and the legacies of colonialism and apartheid in Africa.” Zuma said, if Africa was to develop faster, “we need to address certain constraints”.
