“If Africa’s youth are educated, skilled and healthy, they will be a most powerful engine of growth,” said Museveni at a recent conference in Angola, adding, “all this potential cannot be unlocked without good infrastructures, especially roads, the railway, electricity, ICT infrastructure, Ports and piped water for, at least, the towns.”

The AfDB meetings which started on Monday, end Friday this week.

Meanwhile, Rwanda President Paul Kagame will today participate in a discussion on “Ending Conflict and Building Peace in Africa.”


Other high profile personalities expected to join Kagame today are Thabo Mbeki, former President South Africa and Olusegun Obasanjo, former Nigerian leader.

The panelists will discuss the experience of different countries and partners in engaging in situations of fragility.

This discussion comes at a critical time in light of the current emerging combined pressures of rapid urbanization, climate change, youth unemployment, inequality, terrorism, wars and new discoveries of natural resources.

Each of these factors place African societies under considerable strain and risk.

Kagame is expected to give an insight into Rwanda’s recovery from the tragic 1994 genocide to a world model of inclusive growth and social economic transformation.

Officials said discussants will put urgent attention to the transition of national movements into state-building and peace-building processes.

The event will provide more attention to the urgent need to act immediately to ensure systems and policies are responsive, not only to address ongoing conflict, but to create an environment where future conflicts can be mitigated or avoided altogether in the long term.
