The African Institute for Economic Development and Planning (IDEP) is a pan-African institution created in 1962 by the General Assembly of the United Nations. It began its operations on 21st November, 1963 with the primary purpose of accompanying and supporting newly independent African countries in their quest to build their human resource capacities as a necessary prerequisite for sustaining independence and promoting socio-economic development.

    "The African Institute for Economic Development and Planning laid my foundational understanding of trade liberalisation, trade policy, trade law and economic development. In 2014, I completed my first international course on International Trade Policy for National and Regional Development. The course gave me an understanding of how trade can be used as an effective tool of Developing Countries like mine; Liberia. I am grateful to IDEP for the opportunity. I wish them all the best, as they pursue pertinent issues of developmental concerns in Africa. Merci Beacoup! Thank you very much!"
