Ending the Disconnect between Policy-makers and Researchers

The objective of organizing the AfDB Economic Conference which is being attended by leading experts and national policy-makers is also a signal that we want to break the isolation of national policymakers from researchers, said Louis Kasekende, AfDB's Chief Economist. "By bringing together leading researchers and policymakers to deliberate on issues of common interest such as are before us, we expect outcomes that would be mutually satisfying. In this light, the output of this AEC in terms of the papers presented and the discussions thereon will be published for widest possible dissemination among African policy-makers in regional member countries, international organizations, donor organizations and other stakeholders in Africa’s development."
