On 1 February 2017, a high-level conference on Africa’s relationship with the Group of 20 (G20) was opened by the German Parliamentary State Secretary Thomas Silberhorn, who spoke on the key priorities of the German G20 Presidency.
This T20 Africa conference was co-hosted by SAIIA, the German Development Institute (DIE) and the Institute for the World Economy (IfW Kiel), with support from the Managing Global Governance (MGG) Network the Global Economic Governance Africa (GEG Africa) project. It was an opportunity for leaders from universities and think tanks, high-level policy-makers from South Africa, Germany, international and African regional organisations to discuss how Africa and the G20 can build alliances for sustainable development.
Jaime de Melo, Scientific Director at FERDI was a participant at the conference. He presented the Minining tax database for Africa at the plenary session.
