Seminar on Industrialization in Africa
The African Development Bank (AfDB) will host the 19th Senior Policy Seminar (SPS XIX) of the African Economic Research Consortium (AERC) on the theme “Industrialization in Africa” on 13th and 14th March 2017 in Abidjan.
The theme of the seminar, which echoes one of the Bank’s High 5s, namely “Industrialize Africa” will bring together AERC researchers and economic policymakers to explore solutions to speed up industrialization in Africa.
The meeting will be an opportunity for the Bank to introduce and review its Industrialization Strategy.
Results of a research program titled, “Learning to Compete” which analyses challenges of industrialization in Africa will also be disseminated during the seminar.
