World Bank to host African Diaspora event
19 February 2010
The World Bank has revealed that Washington will host the second African Diaspora Open House later this month.
Launched by the organisation in 2007, the African Diaspora Program (ADP) aims to work with governments in Africa and the African Union Commission to make progress with the Diaspora.
At the Open House, held at the World Bank on February 25th, advice will be given on how progress can be made in the continent and how technology such as ICT may be implemented.
Private sector development, employment, communications and education in Africa will also be among the areas of discussion at the event.
First held in 2007, the Open House for African Diaspora looked at how the World Bank Group was encouraging development.
The World Bank's Africa Action Plan was discussed in terms of how it was aiding progress in the continent.
It is hoped that the second event will build on the success of the first.
