INCLUDE and the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs will jointly organise a conference on ‘Boosting youth employment in Africa: what works and why?’ on 30 May. The conference will be hosted by the Netherlands Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation, Ms Lilianne Ploumen.
Creating productive and sustainable jobs for African youth on a large scale is a priority issue in international dialogues. This conference wants to provide a platform to Dutch, European and African policymakers and other stakeholders to exchange knowledge and the latest research evidence to formulate solutions with impact. Young African entrepreneurs from e.g. agribusiness and the tech sector as well as (political) youth leaders will be present to share their successes and challenges.
