CSEA participates in the African Transformation Forum (ATF2018)

The 2nd African Transformation Forum (ATF2018) was hosted by the African Center for Economic Transformation (ACET), in collaboration with the Government of Ghana.

The ATF2018 which was a Dialogue for Action, brought together leading experts and practitioners from Africa to share perspectives on how to accelerate job growth, boost investment and help shape the course of economic transformation in Africa.

The event also offered an opportunity for the private sector and other non-state actors to get engaged and take stock of progress made in the Pan-African Coalition for Transformation (PACT). Launched at the ATF2016, PACT is a mechanism for high-level government, the private sector and civil society stakeholders to collaborate across sectors and borders to speed up implementation of transformative policies and reforms.

Dr Chukwuka Onyekwena joined other participants to contribute directly to the formation of action plans for several PACT thematic chapters, including those focused on resource mobilization, manufacturing, agriculture, extractives and skills development.

The ATF2018 also featured a private sector CEO roundtable in which a panel of leading executives shared their thoughts and strategies on the vital role of the business community in Africa’s transformation process.

The event held in Accra, Ghana from June 20-21, 2018.
