Abstract

This study aims to show that for pro growth industrialization, contemporary industrial policy needs to emphasis on improvement of energy production and of the quality of human capital with application on Central Africa sub region. After a literature review on industrial policy concept, we have highlighted the link between improving energy production, investment in human capital and the level of industrial development through economic growth in Central Africa using a descriptive approach. Indeed produce less energy and unskilled human capital has a negative impact on medium and long term industrial development through economic growth channel. This result has therefore confirmed our recommendation to the implementation of an industrial policy mainly focused on reducing energy dependence and improving the quality of human capital in Central Africa; This, and not to be exhaustive, through increased investment in energy production capacity and in training.
