The 11th African Economic Conference (AEC) wound up in Abuja, Nigeria on Wednesday, after three days of intensive discussions on how African countries can achieve agro-allied industrialization. Over 300 participants attended the annual event, co-organized by the African Development Bank (AfDB), UN Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) and United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), on the theme, "Feed Africa: Towards Agro-Allied Industrialization for Inclusive Growth." "This should not just be another conference. There has to be some key actions going forward, deploying agriculture to spearhead Africa’s economic transformation," Ousmane Dore, the Resident Representative of the African Development Bank’s Nigeria Country Office, said as he closed the meeting.
