African Ministers of Finance, Planning and Economic Development are due to meet in South Africa from 19 - 21 October to discuss what it will take to effectively implement the New Partnership for Africa's Development (NEPAD). This will be the largest gathering of Ministers and experts dealing with economic policy in Africa on NEPAD since its endorsement by African leaders at the inaugural summit of the African Union in Durban in July 2002. In addition to the Ministers, more than 500 participants -- including central bank governors, leading academics and researchers, civil society and private sector representatives, and the international community -- are due to attend. A meeting of the Committee of Experts from 16 - 18 October will precede the Conference.
