Africa 2.0:Harnessing natural resource wealth for economic transformation

The 13th International Economic Forum on Africa will take place in the OECD Conference Centre on Monday 7 October, 2013.

This annual Forum organised by the Development Centre brings together OECD and African policy-makers with academia, civil society and private sector leaders to discuss Africa’s main challenges and opportunities. This year, the Forum will focus on strategies to promote greater economic diversification and inclusive development in the continent. Some of the key questions to be addressed are:
  • What are the necessary conditions for natural resource wealth to promote broad-based and sustainable development?
  • What does the future of Africa’s energy resources look like?
  • What policies can effectively accelerate the integration of African firms into regional and global markets and value chains?

The debates will build on the conclusions of the African Economic Outlook 2013 report, jointly produced by the OECD Development Centre, the  African Development Bank (AfDB), the UN Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).

Among the speakers of this conference, will be H.E. Macky Sall, President of Senegal, the Secretary-General of the OECD Angel Gurría, Donald Kaberuka, President of the African Development Bank, and Carlos Lopes, Executive Secretary of the UN Economic Commission for Africa.
