AERC Senior Policy Seminar XIX on Industrialization in Africa

The African Economic Research Consortium (AERC) in collaboration with the African Development Bank (AfDB) will host the nineteenth Senior Policy Seminar (SPS XIX) on March 13 – 14, 2017 in Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire. The conference theme will be Industrialization in Africa.

AERC senior policy seminars are forums designed specifically to bring together senior policymakers from sub-Saharan African countries to exchange experiences and deliberate on topical issues pertaining to sustainable development of their economies. Participants are usually drawn from the highest level of government, including the presidency, ministers, governors of central banks, heads of civil services, permanent secretaries and heads of government agencies and parastatals. We expect a similar level of participation in this one as well, as renowned scholars make presentations on selected sub-themes.

Participants will also have an opportunity to discuss pertinent issues related to industrialization at length in the plenary and at the policy roundtable.
