African Diaspora Business Dialogue

May 03, 2016 | 13:00 ET, 17:00 GMT

It is estimated that by 2040, Africa will have a larger workforce than China or India, requiring targeted enterprise growth in areas that can enhance food supply, healthcare services, and educational solutions including Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Africa’s growth is at a positive turning point which provides a valuable opportunity to consider not only how to sustain growth, but also how to make it inclusive across all sectors of society. Sustainable growth will be determined by how stakeholders work together across socioeconomic, gender, youth, sector, and educations lines to make sure opportunities become available for everyone. This dialogue will be an opportunity to continue the conversation, encourage the interaction and collaboration that will be essential for finding solutions.
