« A renewed growth model and development paradigm for Africa »

Workshop by invitation, Paris

Africa is endowed with incredible natural and human resources, as well as great cultural, ecological, and economic diversity. Although the continent has enjoyed numerous economic advances in recent years, many Africans still expect greater economic opportunities than they are currently obtaining. Despite a rapidly rising population - which will represent a quarter of the global population by 2050 - the African continent grew at an average annual rate of 4.7% between 2000 and 2017. This level of growth has so far been insufficient to trigger fundamental structural changes, while failing to create enough decent jobs, with 282 million people currently working in unstable employment.

Marrakesh, Morocco

Since its inception in 2012, the Atlantic Dialogues (AD) conference has become a well-established annual meeting point taking place in Marrakesh, bringing together around 350 high-level senior officials, business leaders, academics, opinion shapers and civil society actors. Morocco has been host to these gatherings given its location and close relations to all countries bordering the Atlantic.

The 2018 Intergovernmental Conference to Adopt the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration

 SIDE EVENT ON

“Migration, Trade and the Global Economy”

Palmeraie Conference Center, Marrakesh, Morocco

The rapid expansion of a globalized economy supported by a trade and investment system of rules, processes and institutions seems to be interacting with migration flows in ways not experienced before. Trade agreements in a North-South context upgrade the skills and qualifications of foreign service providers. Aid for Trade (AfT) projects which are linked to diasporas’ transnational engagements support market mechanisms towards improved livelihood opportunities for unemployed youth in countries of origin and transit.

Call for submissions: Africa and global commodity markets: towards a new paradigm? For the 6th Bordeaux Workshop in International Economics and Finance

 

Theme

Over the last two decades, as in previous decades, commodity prices have gone through particularly significant upward and downward phases, which have not been without major consequences on the economic, social and political realities of African exporting countries. The ambition of this workshop, two years after the return of bullish prices, is to appreciate the nature of the various links that unite Africa and world commodity markets and to characterize a possible paradigm shift. Considering the high degree of commodities’ price instability, has the macroeconomic resilience of the African continent increased over the last decade? What have been the consequences of the financialization of commodity markets on the reality of African producers? What are the challenges that Africa must now overcome to ensure the economic diversification that governments are calling for? Is there a significant evolution since the end of the super-cycle of the relations between Africa on the one hand and Western or Chinese groups on the other? What are the opportunities offered to African producers by the creation of the Continental free trade area and the promotion of continental demand? Is a reform of global commodity markets that would benefit African countries now only a distant utopia? So many questions, among others, that this workshop will try to address. This analysis could be as general as it could be specific to a specific commodity or a (group of) country. In this respect, this workshop is not necessarily limited to strictly economic approaches and remains open to alternative approaches combining economics, politics, geopolitics, law, or sociology as long as they open a new perspective on the theme of this workshop.

The IMF and the Future of International Monetary and Financial Cooperation

Ministry of Economy and Finance, Rabat

By Edwin M. Truman, Non-Resident Senior Fellow, Peterson Institute for International Economics

For almost 75 years, the International Monetary Fund has been at the center of the post-World War international monetary system. The institution has evolved as the global economy has been transformed politically and economically. As with other international institutions, the IMF and its position in the center of the system are now under threat from potential neglect by the Trump administration and from competition from China as the principal rival to US domination of the Bretton Woods system. For example, the US Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin has stated that the IMF has adequate financial resources, implying that the review of IMF quotas that is to be completed by the end of 2019 need not add further to IMF resources, even though some of the IMF’s current resources will be unavailable after 2020. If IMF quotas are not increased, the governance of the IMF will remain static, frustrating the dynamic emerging market economies.
