Event Brief

Rational

At this critical time in our collective history, Africa faces what is arguably its most daunting challenge, the COVID-19 pandemic, in addition to dealing with monumental infrastructure and energy deficits; Food shortages arising from Locust-19; a youthful population desperate for jobs and opportunities; and huge gaps in health-care delivery, education and poverty eradication. As such, the continent has never been in need of innovative leadership and solutions that would bring about progress, development and welfare of the African people, as it does now.  

More so, prior to the pandemic, Africa presented the world’s most exciting opportunities to global businesses seeking expansion in retail and distribution, ICT, the Agriculture value chain, and other sectors. According to the World Economic Forum- at least half of the world’s fastest-growing economies have been in Africa since 2000. However, COVID-19 happened, and according to the experts, most of these progresses would be wiped out plunging most African economies into despair. Hence all stakeholders must come up with strategies and pathways to recovery and growth for the continent.

The 4th edition of the Africa Summit, 2020, which had always been held in London UK, would now hold as a virtual event – an African Leadership magazine’s response to the debate on resetting Africa’s development priorities post-COVID-19. The theme of the summit has therefore been put as ‘COVID-19: Pathways to Africa’s Economic Recovery and Growth.’
