The dialogue will focus on the pivotal role of think tanks and what role they play towards Africa’s growth.

Prime Minister Ruhakana Rugunda will tomorrow preside over a dialogue on positioning Africa for the 21st Century, at the Kampala Sheraton Hotel, Rwenzori Ballroom from 8:30 AM to 12:45 PM.

The dialogue will focus on the pivotal role of think tanks and what role they play towards Africa’s growth.

What’s more, a debate at the dialogue will provoke key questions, for instance - How can Africans leverage the economic potential of their natural resources? Is Africa a continent on the move forward, or in circles? What global perspectives are currently driving the Africa Now narrative? How does Africa develop a generation of future leaders who will transform the continent?

The event which is open to the public will attract leading think tanks, top CEOs, high level government leaders and youth representatives among others, including Professor Eddy Maloka, the CEO of the Africa Peer Mechanism Review.

At the same event will be the official launch of the Africa Now initiative of the Centre along with the announcement of the Africa Now Conference dates.

“The Africa Now initiative aims to move Africa forward by finding home - grown solutions to the challenges it faces. This will be implemented by the Africa Strategic Leadership Centre, an independent think tank which focuses on Dialogue, Research and Policy,” reads the press release from the Africa Strategic Leadership Centre (ASLC), which has organised the event.

“Aspects such as transformational leadership, ICT, peace and security, climate change and environmental conservation, food security and agriculture, economy – trade and investment, leadership and governance will be discussed,” reads the press release.

ASLC is a think tank that supports decision makers and policymakers with policy-based research, focused on fostering inter-sectoral debate to define the role and value of conversation in Africa’s development agenda.

In order to find sustainable solutions that address these concerns, the centre intends to use its research as a tool to facilitate evidence- based policy, which enhances public and private sector development in Africa.
