Feed Africa: Towards Agro-Allied Industrialization for Inclusive Growth

The theme for the 2016 African Economic Conference (AEC) is
"Feed Africa: Towards Agro-Allied Industrialization for Inclusive Growth".
This theme is timely and in line with the current African and international development agenda. Ending poverty and overcoming hunger and food insecurity permanently come first and second, respectively, in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) endorsed in September 2015 by UN member States.

“What Africa does with agriculture is not only important for Africa: it will shape the future of food in the world.” – Akinwumi Adesina, AfDB President
