The SADC Industrialization Strategy and Roadmap is formulated in the context of existing national and regional policies and specifically the August 2014 Summit at Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe, which was held under the theme: “SADC Strategy for Economic Transformation: Leveraging the Region’s Diverse Resources for Sustainable Economic and Social Development through Beneficiation and Value Addition”. Summit directed that industrialization takes centre stage in SADC’s regional integration Agenda. To this end, Summit mandated the Ministerial Task Force on Regional Economic Integration to develop a strategy and roadmap for industrialization of the Region.
