    The UNU World Institute for Development Economics Research (UNU-WIDER) and Trinity College Dublin will co-organise a policy seminar on the new book ‘Made in Africa: Learning to Compete in Industry’, on Africa Day, 25 May 2016, at Trinity College, Dublin. The book launch will bring together development experts, academics, NGOs, and the Irish media to discuss Africa’s industrialization challenges and possible strategies for accelerating the process.

    At the event, Professor Carol Newman (Trinity College Dublin), Professor Finn Tarp (Director of UNU-WIDER) discuss the findings of UNU-WIDER’s Learning to Compete (L2C) research program investigating the seemingly simple, but frustratingly puzzling question: Why is there so little industry in Africa? The book will be launched by Kevin Dowling, Director for Southern Africa with the Irish Department of Foreign Affairs.
