African Economic Conference 2017
Plenary session 4: Role of institutions in transformative governance (ECA and AfDB)
Transformative institutions are an essential ingredient in developmental States. Such institutions will be capable of responding to the changing global economic landscape and of creating policies that are appropriate to it at the national, subnational and regional levels. Coordinated development plans and associated policy frameworks for sustainable development will be required. Developmental States emerge in different political contexts; however, in order to be sustainable, they must be both inclusive and democratic. This session provides an opportunity for participants to look at issues in institutional structures, design and implementation for inclusive and sustainable economic transformation. In addition, participants were encouraged to recommend measures for enhancing national, regional and subnational government policy and administration, and regulatory and resource mobilization capabilities.
