International Monetary Fund: Africa Rising
Dates: 29 May - 30 May 2014
Location: Maputo - Mozambique

altAfrica Rising: The Government of Mozambique and the IMF will convene a high-level conference in 2014 to take stock of Africa’s economic performance, its increased resilience to shocks, and the key ongoing economic policy challenges. The Africa Rising conference will be held May 29-30, in Maputo. The event is a follow up to the 2009 Tanzania Conference, which galvanized international support for Africa after the 2008 financial crisis. However, the benefits of growth have not always been shared. Job creation has been slow and poverty rates remain high. Many countries are joining the ranks of natural resource producers, bringing tremendous opportunity--but also many risks. Domestic financial markets remain shallow, and access to credit is remote.

The conference will bring together policymakers from Africa and beyond, the private sector, civil society and academics, in a forum where leaders will be able to share their ideas—and perhaps lay the foundation for strong and sustainable growth.
