George Washington University, Jack Morton Auditorium
This panel will be the culmination of a full-day conference on Africa Rising: Building to the Future, an in-depth examination of the crucial policy challenges facing Africa as it builds upon its recent economic success. Under the theme of Policies for Sustained and Inclusive Growth, the panel will review the conclusions of the day’s three earlier panels, on Inclusive Growth, Structural Transformation and Economic Diversification, and Scaling Up Public Investment. The aim is to identify policies to share the fruits of continued high growth more widely across populations, and set sub-Saharan economies on the path to becoming emerging markets. The panel will represent a cross section experts from government, academia, and civil society, with IMF Deputy Managing Director Min Zhu.
