She also added that modernizing agriculture, ensuring quality education, improving role of the manufacturing industry in the economy and ensuring peace and stability are among the areas that need attention.

The third Ministerial Retreat aims at brainstorming and exchanging ideas on critical issues related to the implementation of the Africa Agenda 2063 so as to give clear direction and guidelines on devising best ways and means for its domestication to help improve the living conditions of African citizens.
