The African Development Bank Group (AfDB) will hold its annual meetings, themed 'Africa and the emerging global landscape: challenges and opportunities' in Arusha, Tanzania, from 28 May to 1 June 2012.
This year's theme gives the opportunity for delegates to debate Africa's changing role in the world as its economies continue to grow at faster rates than the rest of the world, and the AfDB's role in promoting this growth and development through its projects, operations and investments around the continent.
Participants will come from both the AfDB's African regional member countries and its non-regional member countries outside Africa, representing the worlds of finance, banking, government, economics, donors, the media, civil society, development and academia.
Delegates will take part in a wide-ranging series of discussions, high-level seminars and workshops on the future of Africa.
The AfDB will be welcoming contributions towards the formulation of its new ten-year Long Term Strategy for 2013 to 2022
. The AfDB has already begun consultations both internally and externally on the creation of this long term strategy, which will replace the current five-year Medium Term Strategy for 2008 to 2012
