The Consequences of the Global Financial Crisis on African Economies - Press release

The Africa Governance Institute – in partnership with the African Institute of Economic Development and Planning (IDEP) and the ECOBANK Group – organises, as part of its program on advanced political dialogue and operational reflection for developmental governance in Africa, a high level panel on ‘The consequences of the global financial crisis on African economies’ on November 8th, 2011 from 10 am to 1:30 pm at the Hotel Fleur de Lys in Dakar (Senegal).

The main objectives of this meeting, whose keynote speaker will be Mr. Paul Harry Aithnard - Research Director of ECOBANK Group - are to question the immediate and non-immediate effects of the global financial crisis on African economies and to identify the possibilities of a public-private partnership for the financing of developmental governance.

Must we underestimate (or not) the impact of the global financial crisis on African economies ? That is the question at the heart of this meeting.

The panel - made up of representatives of Senegalese authorities, African institutions, members of the African diplomatic corps accredited to Senegal, development partners, experts and representatives of civil society - aims to open up a space for high-level dialogue between the AGI, IDEP, and the private sector for better developmental governance. It will also fits within AGI and IDEP’s program to strengthen the capacity of private actors in Africa.
