The Center for International Private Enterprise (CIPE) organized a CIPE Africa Partners Roundtable “Strategies for Reform,” held in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, at the White Sands Hotel, from December 7-9, 2010.
This roundtable on recognizing the vital and strategic role that business associations and think tanks play in advancing democratic and economic reform on the continent was an event for key CIPE partners and colleagues to actively engage in discussion and share best practices. The event provided participants with an opportunity to gain valuable tools from the most successful CIPE reform programs in the region, as well as further their network with other associations and think tanks in Africa to facilitate collaboration. The program involved a network of 20-25 distinguished CIPE partners from Cote d’Ivoire, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Senegal, Zimbabwe, and others.
The active participants in the roundtable enhanced their organization’s strategic focus and programming, as well as gave them the opportunity to provide valuable input into CIPE’s strategy to support reform efforts on the continent.
We at SMES-EA wish CIPE all the best in their work in the African Continet
