Living and working in Africa, I tend to agree that Africa does need policies of industrialization rather than industrial policies (after all when you come to think of it grammatically, how can policies be industrial?). However with the weak implemenation and monitoring framework characterising most African countries a clear challenge would be how to make these policies work. A good starting point is the quality of statistics from all the sectors of their economies...the old cliche goes..."you cant manage what you cant measure"
