1st International Conference - Gateway to Africa

1st International Conference - Gateway to Africa

Location: , Switzerland
Category: Regional Studies
Start Date: 04-04-2011 Last Day: 04-06-2011
Gateway to Africa is a unique conference. While there have been a proliferation of Africa- related conferences in recent years, most have recurring themes: AIDS, Conflict Resolution, Democracy, Political Transparency, Hunger, and Education. Others originate from advocacy, relief agencies and NGOs, and are by nature one-dimensional. After months of deliberation and consultation, we have concluded that what is conspicuously lacking in the international discourse on Africa, is the interdisciplinary approach. Health, education, access to and the harnessing of technology, energy policy, politics, Africa’s role and standing in world affairs– as a continent and as individual states- are all substantial topics.…

The process through which government obtains the goods and services it needs to fulfil its public functions is generally known as public procurement.
