The State of the Africa Region Seminar is held at each of the World Bank Annual and Spring Meetings. This edition will feature a presentation by Makhtar Diop, World Bank’s Vice President for the Africa Region, and a panel of some of the region’s leading thinkers and policymakers as discussants. This event will focus on the development implications for a region which is a net exporter of a large number of commodities. Other long-term challenges - related to the demographic transition; urgent human development needs; and the changing nature of conflict and fragility - will also be discussed.
