International Conference "Africa Works! 21th Century Trends" - 29&30 October 2012
Africa in the 21th century has already proven to be the source of endless possibilities and trends. In the first decade of the 21st century, the perception of Africa has changed dramatically from being the ‘hopeless continent’ to being a continent of ‘lion economies’, analogous to the Asian tigers. Income disparities continue to persist, but a genuine middle class is emerging in many African countries. Investors are increasingly eyeing Africa with interest; the time has come to acknowledge Africa.
The international conference 'Africa Works! 21st Century Trends' aims to create a better understanding of how Africa works today and what the (economic) prospects of the African continent and its people are. On 29 and 30 October 2012 prominent (African) business leaders, entrepreneurs, policy makers, researchers, journalists and others engaged with Africa are brought together to be challenged and to sharpen their perception of contemporary Africa.
The Netherlands-African Business Council (NABC) and the African Studies Centre (ASC) invite you to join in on 29 en 30 October and be inspired that Africa Works!
