African Development Bank (AfDB) will organise Pre-TICAD7 Knowledge Event - Human Capital and Industrial Development in Africa - on Wed, 26 Sep 2018, in cooperation with the United Nations Industrial Development Organization.
Since Africa has abundant resources and potentials, the most important challenge for Africa and the rest of the world is to unlock these potentials. Industrialization requires a variety of enablers, such as 1) supportive poli-cies, legislation and institutions, 2) conductive economic environments and infrastructure, 3) access to capital and markets, 4) regional integration, and 5) competitive talents, capabilities and entrepreneurship. Speakers will share their ideas and initiatives on human capital and industrial develop-ment in Africa. This Knowledge Event is free of charge and is open to public and private sectors, academia, civil society and anyone interested in Africa.
