The African Development Bank and the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) have a critical role to play in helping Africa sustain the growth momentum by providing support and capacity-building assistance in research and policy formulation. Against this background, the AfDB launched the annual African Economic Conference (AEC) in November 2006. The AEC aims at providing a forum for the exchange of ideas among economists and policy-makers with the view to improving access to information and research on economic issues and, as a consequence, the quality of economic policy-making in Africa.
