The annual African Economic Conference (AEC) is to be held from 17 to 19 November 2014 in Ethiopia. It will be conducted in Addis Ababa under the theme, "Skills, Technology and Innovation for Economic Transformation".

AEC is a major forum that brings together academics and development practitioners in the field of economics to dialogue and exchange ideas on key challenges facing Africa.

The Conference series is organized jointly by the African Development Bank, the Economic Commission for Africa and the United Nations Development Program.

This year's AEC will offer a unique avenue for researchers, policymakers and development practitioners from Africa, and elsewhere, to debate Africa's soft infrastructure needs and their catalytic impact on the speed and scope of economic transformation and inclusive growth.
