Looking Ahead– Africa 2013. AU celebrates 50 years and IMF projects economic confidence.

Happy Anniversary Africa! In 2013 the continent will be celebrating a Golden Jubilee, commemorating May 25, 1963. That day, 50 years ago, the Organization of Africa Unity (OAU) was born, to later reincarnate as the African Union (AU) and affording the continent sufficient clout to accelerate integration and development.

When the leaders of the AU meet in 2013, it will be a moment to take stock of where the continent is, and where it should be headed.
