Did you know? The working age population in Sub-Saharan Africa is expected to increase by 740 million by 2050, more than doubling from its current level of 630 million people. Yet African economies are already struggling to create well-paying, stable jobs, let alone address the looming demographic challenge.
In a discussion with Anita Erskine, a dynamic entrepreneur and broadcaster from Ghana, Andrew Dabalen, the World Bank’s Chief Economist for Africa, will answer questions from young Africans regarding the future of jobs on the continent, provide a survey of regional macro-economic trends, and propose paths for countries to deepen inclusive growth by providing more and better jobs.
