||The African Development Bank (AfDB) are organizing the “Africa Forum on Science, Technology and Innovation for Youth Employment, Human Capital Development, and Inclusive Growth” in Nairobi, Kenya, from April 1 to 3, 2012. Following discussions with the organizers, WIPO have been invited to be a co-sponsor of the event and to give two presentations at the Forum. A background note and the program for the Forum are attached. If you agree, we should like to propose that we accept the proposal to be a co-sponsor. There are no costs attached to co-sponsorship, and that we accept the invitation to participate.
