AABD annual conferences aim at facilitating multidisciplinary research by stimulating collaborations between Africa based researchers and professionals and their counterparts around the world, broadening and deepening global understanding of various issues relevant to Africa's business and development, as well as advancing solutions to some of her challenges. The conference theme, “Entrepreneurship, Social Enterprises, and Economic Sustainability in the African Context,” originates from the belief that the private sector can play a critical role both in stimulating economic growth in a socially responsible manner and in eradicating poverty in Africa. The discrepancy between the observed reality and this belief suggests there is a need to maintain an ongoing dialogue on these topics among major stakeholders, including researchers, business practitioners, community leaders, and policy makers if the goal of transforming Africa for better is to be realized.
