Convene. Strategize. Transform.

The inaugural African Transformation Forum 2016, jointly organized by the African Center for Economic Transformation (ACET) and the Government of Rwanda, convened 14–15 March 2016 at the Serena Hotel in Kigali, drawing 270 participants from around the world, a diverse group of development leaders unified in their eagerness to accelerate Africa’s economic transformation.

K.Y. Amoako, ACET’s Founder and President, joined Claver Gatete and Carlos Lopes in opening the Forum by describing the “remarkable consensus, both within and outside Africa, that economic transformation holds the key to sustained growth and prosperity.”

The Forum concluded with the official launch of the Coalition for Transformation in Africa, a broad network of experts who will join forces and work across sectors to drive policy and institutional reforms in support of transformation strategies.

We’re not doing this alone

Throughout our process, we work in close collaboration with a global network of partners, sponsors, and stakeholders. Most important, at every level we operate, we engage think tanks and institutions to ensure we’re capturing African expertise and deepening our understanding of local conditions. So far, we’ve worked with think tanks in 15 countries.
