AFRICA’S SHINING MOMENT: THE NEED FOR SUSTANABLE GROWTH
The African Wealth Report (AWR) has announced the 3rd edition of AWR Executive Summit on Africa which takes place on the 16th January 2017 at the Beau Rivage Palace, Lausanne Switzerland.
This is Africa’s shining moment! A period of stability and dynamism. Suppressing decades of economic depression, despair and dislocation as a result of socio-political upheavals, the time to take control of our destiny through purposeful leadership and foresight has come. Really it is a new dawn for the African people, her economy and development.
The theme of this year’s event is aimed at focussing on success stories achieved over the years and the need to further stimulate developmental efforts through investment in agriculture, infrastructure, and electricity.
Since the decline in oil price regime, a reconfiguration of Africa’s socio-economic path is on course. Of course, the impact of the shock affected the continent’s powerhouses- Nigeria and South Africa. Though Africa’s GDP is still hovering around 5%+ it could grow whilst diversifying into other key economic drivers-Agriculture and other alternatives including Entertainment and Creative industry.
A New Integrated Vision!
With the launch of the African Union Passport the continent is set to increase major economic boost. A liberalization and sustainable growth in Africa’s economic sphere will usher in prosperity, as trade will flourish within its borders. What EU could not achieve in its economic integration as a result of BREXIT could be the strength of Africa’s new trade pacts. A steady GDP growth is envisaged and further growth is imminent as the frontier market soars.
