52nd Session of the Economic Commission for Africa

Fiscal policy, trade and the private sector in the digital era: A strategy for Africa

20-26 March 2019 Marrakech Morocco

One week of insights, debates and discussions.

The 2019 Conference of African Ministers of Finance, Planning and Economic Development will tackle the theme: fiscal policy, trade and the private sector in the digital era: a strategy for Africa.

The Conference will provide an opportunity for African Ministers to examine the fiscal policies necessary for the implementation of the African Continental Free Trade Area within the frameworks of the 2030 Agenda and Agenda 2063 and the critical role of private sector in the era of the digital economy.

The plenary sessions of the Conference of Ministers will commence with a highlevel policy dialogue on the theme for 2019, followed by plenary sessions on a series of sub-themes. Contributions from seasoned and high-level panellists from within and outside Africa will guide the discussion, which will be informed by recent findings. The sessions will build consensus on priority areas for action.

In addition to the Adedeji Lecture, inspiring discussions are anticipated to arise from a number of side events scheduled to take place on 23 and 24 March 2019.
