Africa’s quest for accelerated growth and sustainable development can only be achieved through a radical economic transformation. The constraints to this transformative agenda are majorly divisions between countries caused by geography, poor infrastructure and inefficient policies that have resulted into poor flow of trade, capital, energy, people, skills and knowledge.
Critical to the attainment of this economic transformation, is regional integration. Without any doubt it offers the shortest and surest means of consolidating the region’s weak, small and disparate economies and hence building the economies of scale and achieving the international competitiveness necessary for the region’s sustainable development. It also promotes establishment of the mechanisms necessary for the management of cross-border challenges of regional nature, such as water management, climate change, food security, cross-border health issues, etc.
This year’s conference will be centered on Knowledge and Innovation and how they are indispensible ingredients necessary for the promotion of regional integration and creation of a resilient regional economy with enough muscle and resilience to survive any turbulence
