Kwasi ADU-AMANKWAH :

We urge African governments to unite for progressive tax reform and challenge the rest of the world to make tax systems fairer to help end poverty and inequality. Adequate revenue flows aligned to a well-articulated structural transformation strategy can assist Africa to curtail dependency on aid, provide better public services to our people, and gain stronger control of our path to sustainable development.

Africa

In Africa, the implementation of labour laws - when in place- and respect for trade union rights, remain problematic. Numerous violations were again recorded in 2010. In addition to the structural issues, unions in the region often have to grapple with anti-union actions both from private employers and governments. Lawful strikes are difficult to call in many countries, and strike repression is rife and often leads to violence.
