This week is the World Bank/IMF Spring Annual Meetings in Washington D.C. The city is buzzing with people and the cherry orchards are blooming. All hotels are filled with government delegations and streets are blocked off at every intersection. Amid this chaos, this is the perfect opportunity to go to policy events at Brookings Institute, Wilson Center and CSIS to watch, listen and discuss. On April 15, I went to a discussion led by African Development Bank President, Mr. Donald Kaberuka, about the growth initiatives in Africa. It was a fantastic speech filled with very important information about what is currently going on in Africa and what is the forecast for future growth. See the Storify embed below for a better understanding of the Africa Growth Initiative.
