BUSINESS Africa seeks to influence policy at continental level by enhancing business voice in continental and international bodies such as the African union Commission (AUC), the United Nations Economic Commission (ECOSOC) for Africa, the ILO Regional Office for Africa, the African Development bank and other continental bodies. BUSINESS Africa will also build on relations developed within the United Nations system, the International monetary Fund (IMF), the World Bank, the World Trade Organization (WTO) and others.
