The 7th China – Africa Think Tank Forum “Strengthening dialogue for a shared future”
The role of Think-Tanks in society is to engage in the battle of ideas by providing research-based advocacy and evidence-based commentary on pertinent public affairs. Think Tanks play a vital role in the development of the economy at both local and national levels. The role further extends to compliment Government in making informed policy decisions through public policy research and analysis while at the same time aid the public to understand government policy decisions. In view of the increasing influence of Think-Tanks worldwide, there is need for our networks to be established among several like-minded institutions to promote a shared approach to development.
