AfDB, World Bank, IMF to host confab on Africa’s future private sector
The African Development Bank (AfDB), World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) together with the Rwandan government and parliament are hosting a major conference on the development of the private sector in Africa and its crucial role for economic growth, job creation and poverty reduction on the continent.
The conference entitled ‘Private Sector Development in Africa – Cornerstone for Sustainable Growth’ starts March 14 and ends March 16, 2012. It will be held in the Rwandan capital, Kigali.
The conference will review the private sector environment in Africa and examine actions that African nations, in particular their parliamentary representatives, can take to promote sustainable private sector development that boosts inclusive growth.
It is expected to bring together between 150 to 200 participants from the private sector, civil society, donors and parliamentarians in Africa.
