The Australia Africa Conference 2014 is an upgrade of two previous initiatives. First, is the Africa Update conference held at ANU last year, which in itself was a culmination of smaller events focusing on the gradually growing ties between Africa and Australia over the years. Second, is the five Australian African Universities Network (AAUN) Forums held since 2011; two of them in Pretoria with the support of the Australian Government
The conference will be hosted by the African Group of High Commissioners and Ambassadors and the Australia Africa Universities Network (AAUN). The conference sponsors and supporters include: Australia Africa conference 2014, Australia Africa Business Council , Canberra Business Council, Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) in Australia, The ACT Exporters Network, Windlab Systems Pty Ltd, AAUN, and ANU and Crawford School of Public Policy.
