Eighteenth International Forum on Africa

Every year, OECD officials and African policy makers, private sector, academia and civil society leaders as well as high-level representatives from international organisations gather to weigh in on the continent’s major transformations and discuss how better policies can further impact the region. The 18th Africa Forum will look at growth, employment, migration and development in the wake of Africa’s historical decision for closer integration. The forum takes place on 31 October 2018, in Paris, France.

The global economic expansion appears to have peaked, with diverging growth prospects worldwide and intensifying risks, the latest OECD Interim Economic Outlook says. Escalating trade tensions, tightening financial conditions in emerging markets and political risks could further undermine medium-term growth globally.
