Youth unemployment has scourged the African continent, with rates for Sub-Saharan and North Africa as of 2016 being 13 percent and 30.5 percent, respectively.

That Africa is a well endowed region of the world, a continent said to have a ‘golden hand,’ is a fact. But that our continent is not fully taking advantage of its weight and worth in gold, to transform itself and be the development wonder of the world, is an major issue to ponder.

Brazaville 14 Nov, 2016 | Professor Emmanuel Nnadozie

Perceptions about Africa have changed dramatically over the past 20 years. Terms such as ‘Africa rising’, ‘hopeful continent’, ‘second fastest growing region’, etc. have been used to describe the economic growth performance achieved by the continent.

The importance of industrialization to Africa’s development cannot be overemphasized. In fact, Industrialization has been on Africa’s Development Agenda since the early eighties.

Antananarivo 12 Oct, 2016 | Prof Emmanuel Nnadozie

The theme of this year’s Summit, “Inclusive and Sustainable Industrialization” is not only a demonstration of the progress already achieved in the COMESA Region -, progress that has seen the Region successfully fight poverty and put itself on the path to sustainable development

Africa rightly has big ambitions for the future. Our continent is rich in both natural and human resources. We have a talented and energetic young population which, with the right support, can be a powerful motor for prosperity and progress.

Africa’s vulnerability to shocks from outside our continent is becoming more and more obvious. The collapse in commodity prices has sharply slowed growth in many countries.

In the last year, Africa has been through enormous challenges on economic, social and political levels.
