2. Formalising the Informal Sector: Issues and Solutions in Africa;
3. Trade Policy and Innovations in the Global Value Chain;
4. Gender-Responsive Economic Policy Management; and

OBJECTIVE OF THE SEMINAR

The goal of MEFMI is to improve macroeconomic and financial management and performance that supports economic growth and poverty reduction in its member countries. The MEFMI Research and Policy Seminar is an annual event aimed at fostering dialogue and exchange of knowledge that contributes to search for solutions to emerging challenges confronting the region, with a view to preserve and improve prospects for sustaining high and inclusive growth.


EXPECTED OUTCOMES

The Seminar will culminate in the publication of accepted papers in a special edition of peer reviewed journal, the MEFMI Research Journal. In addition, the papers will be abridged into policy briefings to make them more relevant to decision makers. This is expected to strengthen the link between research in economic policy formulation and implementation in the member countries.


SEMINAR FORMAT

The seminar will feature plenary sessions based on selected high quality papers. The plenary sessions will feature presentations of papers by authors as well as discussions, moderated by a panel of experts made up of invited prominent academics, policy makers, practitioners, and representatives of development organizations who share a deep passion for the development of the region and have unique perspectives on how it can be achieved.
 
COMPENSATION FOR THE COST OF RESEARCH

MEFMI will pay a fixed honorarium per paper to the authors of paper(s) that meet the requirements. This will be done after the Editors and Reviewers of each paper are satisfied with the quality of the paper(s) submitted.
