The 14th Edition African Economic Conference to be Held in Egypt

It is in Sharm El Sheikh, Egyptian seaside town, nestled between the desert of the Sinai Peninsula and the Red Sea, that the 14th Edition of the African Economic Conference (AEC) will take place.

Slated for December 02 - 04, the AEC will focus on the theme, ‘Jobs, Entrepreneurship and Capacity Development for African Youths.’

The venue of the meetings will take place at Rixos Premium Seagate Hotel, Sharm El Sheikh.

The African Development Bank the United Nations Development Programme and the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa consider youth employment and entrepreneurship as prerequisites to sustainable structural transformation in Africa.

Governments must duly fulfil their role. Evidence shows that countries with no pragmatic policies to engage the youth have experienced slow or no economic growth.

The pleasant Sharm El Sheikh will host global participants to the AEC, to discuss the role of African governments to address lack of appropriate training, and youth unemployment that is hindering inclusive and sustained economic growth.
