Trade and Investment undoubtedly play key roles in development, including in the acquisition of know-how technology and access to global markets. As such they help attract foreign direct investment, create jobs and facilitate regional integration. Trade and investment have thus been areas of continuing focus for the GCA. The most recent activity in this respect was the GCA meeting on Africa and International Trade, held in Nairobi, Kenya, on August 28-29, 2003. Attended by a large number of African ministers responsible for Trade, as well as other important stakeholders from Africa and from partner countries and organizations, the meeting helped to review and evaluate Africa-related issues on the eve of an important landmark in the Doha Trade Negotiations process.
