This is Africa’s shining moment! A period of stability and dynamism. Suppressing decades of economic depression, despair and dislocation as a result of socio-political upheavals, the time to take control of our destiny through purposeful leadership and foresight has come. Really it is a new dawn for the African people, her economy and development. The theme of this year’s event is aimed at focussing on success stories achieved over the years and the need to further stimulate developmental efforts through investment in agriculture, infrastructure, and electricity. Since the decline in oil price regime, a reconfiguration of Africa’s socio-economic path is on course. Of course, the impact of the shock affected the continent’s powerhouses- Nigeria and South Africa. Though Africa’s GDP is still hovering around 5%+ it could grow whilst diversifying into other key economic sectors-Agriculture and other alternatives including Entertainment and Creative industry.
