NEPAD believes that the delivery of high quality programmes and projects to promote Africa's development and regional integration can only be realised in an environment that permits good economic and corporate governance.

This is in many ways linked to challenges of economic and corporate governance. Among these challenges are targets on inflation, debt-to-GDP ratios, and budget deficit-to-GDP ratios.
