African nations have seen impressive economic growth in the last couple decades, but more is needed to sustain that growth and continue to improve the lives of African citizens. The African Center for Economic Transformation (ACET) argues that African nations need to vigorously promote economic transformation by diversifying their production; making their exports competitive; increasing the productivity of farms, firms and government offices; and upgrading the technology they use throughout the economy. At this CGD seminar, ACET's founder and chief economist will present the 2014 African Transformation Report, which provides action plans for African nations to transform—rather than simply grow—their economies.
