The AEI Workshop, scheduled June 9-11, 2009, in Maputo, is intended for African practitioners, the bank said, adding about 120 people are expected to participate.
In June, the World Bank called for a �New Deal� for Africa's power sector, urging efforts to develop large hydro projects, initiate regional power trade, restructure electricity system management, and increase electrification. (HNN 6/9/08)
