WEF Africa 2017 has officially drawn to a close and over the past 3 days it has been very encouraging to see how many global stakeholders in Africa have a genuine interest in pushing the continent forward be it for private, social or political reasons.
One of the biggest advantages the continent has is the ability to learn from the success and failure of more developed continents. Of particular focus this week has been that growth without the inclusion of all is dangerous. Africa’s greatest asset, the youth dividend, could be its downfall if not nurtured and mentored. It’s also worth noting how the continent is much more powerful as a whole than each African country individually.
