“From Made in Africa to Made for Africa: How can AfCFTA drive tailored solutions to develop Africa?”
Opening session of the AfCFTA Business Forum 20th March, 2018 | Kigali, Rwanda
If the “made in Africa” is the ultimate objective for development, then one way to reach it is to focus e orts on “made-for-Africa” solutions, broadly speaking – not only the innovative services or FinTech, but also the way to finance and develop essential infrastructure and boost industrialization.
The African challenges are opportunities to develop unique approaches in many sectors, and the AfCFTA is a way to scale them up to the entire continent. It is indeed our conviction that these “made for Africa solutions” can certainly become international benchmarks and exported one day to help our continent become an engine for global trade.
