On 28 February 2018, the African Center for Economic Transformation (ACET), which is coordinating the African Policy Dialogues on job creation for youth in Ghana, held a national Policy Dialogue in Accra. The dialogue brought together key stakeholders concerned with addressing employment challenges including policymakers, members of the private sector, academics, development partners, members of youth networks, the media, employers’ associations and trade unions. The half-day dialogue consisted of introductory remarks, plenary and panel discussions, and question and answer sessions.
