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.
Researchers will share perspectives on what makes youth policies effective, and what institutional and regulatory environment governments must pursue to build effective youth capacity. Experiences will be shared on African countries that have put youth at the heart of their strategies and policies.
The African Development Bank, the United Nations Development Program and the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa consider youth employment and entrepreneurship would be in attendance.
