An official announced on Sunday that at least 1,200 participants will attend the Africa Human Capital Heads of State Summit, which will take place July 25-26 in Tanzania’s coastal city of Dar es Salaam.
Dar es Salaam regional commissioner Albert Chalamila said in a statement that delegations from more than 30 African nations, including heads of state, will attend.
“Dar es Salaam has already prepared to receive the delegates, who will also have a chance to sample the country’s abundant tourist attractions,” Chalamila added.
Tanzanian President Samia Suluhu Hassan launched summit preparations on May 19, calling on fellow African leaders, policymakers, and other development stakeholders to accelerate investments in learning, health, and skills to secure the region’s productivity as its most valuable asset.
The World Bank-sponsored summit will focus on “Accelerating Africa’s Economic Growth: Boosting Youth Productivity by Improving Learning and Skills.”
It will bring together leaders from across the continent to concentrate attention and make concrete financial and policy pledges to prioritise investing in people as a key engine of productivity, resilience, and growth.
