Adagom refugee settlement, run by UNHCR, was established in August 2018 to host some of the Cameroonian refugees living in local communities around Cross River. In early December 2018, it was hosting more than 6,400 refugees.

The African Development Bank will present the 2019 edition of its flagship African Economic Outlook report on the sidelines of the 32nd Ordinary Session of the Assembly of the African Union in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on Friday.

The theme for this year's African Economic Outlook is "Integration for Africa's Economic Prosperity."

The annual report highlights economic prospects and projections for the continent as a whole and for each of the 54 countries. It offers short- and medium-term forecasts on the main socio-economic factors, while at the same time examining the challenges and progress.

The report is the result of the work and analysis of the Bank's economic experts. It is a tool for policymakers, academics, investors, development and financial industry professionals and the press and is widely used to inform policy dialogue and enhance operational efficiency of institutions.

The presentation of the AEO to development experts, business and political leaders, media and policy makers follows its official launch at the Bank's Headquarters in Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire on 17 January.

The Addis Ababa presentation will be one of the key side events of the African Union conference.
