Youth: most valuable resource in Africa?
Are Youth the Most Valuable Resource for Economic Transformation in Africa?
Africa has the largest population of young people in the world, with over 200 million individuals aged between 15 and 24. This figure is expected to double by 2045.
Since 2016, The African Development Bank (AfDB) has demonstrated its commitment to a youth-focused economic transformation by investing $800 million in young entrepreneurs, within the agriculture sector, across 15 countries. The organisation has also promoted special zones for investment, specifically those which require young workers, in an effort to accelerate Africa’s industrialisation.
With energy, innovation and a desire to solve problems, youth will remain a valuable resource to nations worldwide in the stratosphere of economics, business and politics. Governments and NGO’s must therefore continue to empower youth and promote different areas of work as this could lead to the revitalisation of sectors, job creation and poverty alleviation.
Money talks but business is negotiated in multiple languages. As business and finance become increasingly complex, clarity of communication can seal the deal.
