The growing interest on Africa by stakeholders of the continent's geopolitics and economy continues to elicit concerns of a continent in the midst of vast wealth, untapped resources and likely brighter future but poor and weak in a world diversifying with enormous energy and surreal ideas that could propel a car and its occupants without a driver and no gas!
What do Africa has that it continues to attract the interest of India, Japan, China, the entire Euro-Asia countries not to mention a jostle for who should take the larger portion between the US of America and others despite continuous bad media publicity.
Ghana was once on spotlight as a model example of stark possibility for a 360 degree shift from poverty to prosperity, leadership example and a society in harmony by reasons of its political decisions, Rwanda followed suit, then Cote D'Ivoire and now Ethiopia as model nations of Africa's development, infrastructural overhaul and exemplary leadership.
Unlike its loud economic giants, none of these model African states could boast of Crude Oil yet they trailblazed in transforming their economies from former poster image of poverty, conflict and confusion into a model state of development that has earned each of these countries unsolicited foreign investments and move them up to a middle income status in less than 10 years.
In an interview with former Rwandan ambassador to China Mr. Francois NGARAMBE and current Ethiopian ambassador to China Mr. Seyoum Mesfin-Focus on quality Leadership, Agriculture and agro-related light manufacturing remains the prime factor for a complete economic transformation.
African economies that have sustained high growth over the long term have typically gone through a process of economic diversification, the spread of new technologies; rising productivity in agriculture and the expansion of the manufacturing sector.
Close observers of China’s economic crisis has foretold an opportunity for Africa to transform the "Made in China" logo to an all-time "Made in Africa" with its vast energetic population of unemployed youths, rich unused resources that were neglected over a long time for a petro-dollar economy, especially regions that were madly dependent on import goods and services-It argues that there is an urgent need to de-risk agriculture as a business, and to equip more young people with the skills they need to make agribusinesses profitable then in reality Africa would have to use this opportunity to establish its long over preached regional unity and pursue responsible leadership goals as it celebrates 53 years of the African Union.
