Africa Industrialization Day - November 20

The Africa Industrialization Day that falls on November 20 is a day declared in 1990, and is a day when a large number of African governments and organizations come together to explore different ways to stimulate the industrialization process in Africa. This special day attracts a large amount of attention from all over the world and hosts special seminars, meetings and other types of events all over Africa.

Although industrialization in Africa can be seen to rise gradually, the continent rich in natural resources lags far behind many other parts of the world, which have an impact on the development of Africa and its ability to communicate at a global level. On this day efforts are being made to bring together as much as possible the leaders of many countries in Africa, and the promotion of common goals on the industrialization of Africa and the exploitation of its resources can be something that the whole world will enjoy.
