In his welcoming remarks to the participants at the opening session, which was chaired by Honorable Oppah Muchinguri, Zimbabwean Minister of Womens Affairs, Gender and Community Development, Dr Soumana Sako, ACBF Executive Secretary, expressed his gratitude to the Government of Nigeria for hosting the workshop. In his opening remarks, Dr. Soumana Sako, ACBF Executive Secretary, congratulated UNCTAD for the publication and launching of this years WIR on the theme Transnational Corporations, Extractive Industries and Development. He highlighted the importance of the report as a tool for understanding trends of foreign direct investment (FDI) and activities of transnational corporations (TNCs) and their developmental impacts and issues, which are of special interest to developing countries, particularly Africa. He indicated that recent developments had shown an increase in FDI flows to Africa, attracting US$ 36 billion in 2006 mainly in extractive industries, as a result of improved macroeconomic management and investment climate in African countries. However, the declining global FDI flows to the continent, which dropped from 3.1% in 2005 to 2.7% in 2006 was reflective of Africas failure to secure a larger share of FDI. He provided pointers as to how to improve the continents share of global FDI by focusing on the upgrading and development of an enabling environment. He further stressed the need for ACBF and similar organizations to endeavour towards building the capacity of institutions and strengthening regulatory frameworks to ensure good governance, rule of law, and transparency, aspects that positively impact on the rate of FDI inflows to Africa.
