ARSO President, Dr. Eve Gadzikwa reminds the members on the role of ARSO to the African Continent

In her official address to the ARSO General Assembly, ARSO President Dr. Eve Gadzikwa reminded the ARSO General Assembly on the role of ARSO when she stated that “Today, while celebrating the 5th African Day of Standardisation, we remember those who laid the foundation on which ARSO rests, forty years on. Equally, we celebrate those of us who inherited this organization and steered it to even greater heights with the cooperation of the great friends we have in the partner Organisations. The African Day of Standardisation remembers the birth of ARSO in 1977 and reminds us of the reason for which ARSO was formed “to let Africa connect to the world and itself through Trade with standardisation as the guidepost”.

The President further highlighted the role of African Union, International Organisations, African Head of States and Governments and Individual in the formation of ARSO, stating the importance of the declaration of the African Union (CAMoT) on the declaration of the Year2017 as Africa’s Year of Quality Infrastructure, as underpinned in the Agenda 2063, “that seeks to “Transform, grow and industrialise Africa’s economies through Enhanced Productivity and industrialisation” (Agenda 2063 paragraph 72).
