The 8th Pan-African Conference (PAC) on Illicit Financial Flows and Taxation, which took place virtually from 9 to 13 November 2020, was quite successful and mutually beneficial to both the Participants and organisers. The theme of this edition was: ‘’The Africa we want after COVID-19: Optimising the Mobilization of the Internal Resources of the Extractive Sector for the Transformation of Africa’’
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the 2020 edition was held in form of physical events (in countries where this was possible) and virtual sessions, on the margins of the meeting and plenary sessions. To make this conference a success, various committees were set up. Among them was the Communications Committee, which was in charge of reporting the event and ensuring its visibility across the African continent with the support of the media. This press-book is a reflection of the extent and quality of the media coverage.
We wish to express our candid appreciation to all the journalists and media houses that contributed to the success of the programme. We are particularly delighted that the Press has continued to partner with us in our commitment to contribute our quota in positioning the African continent for sustainable development, in spite of the several challenges it is contending with.
