“It is really an honour for us to be part of this dialogue because we have an opportunity as Africans a positive narrative about the challenges that we confront.
“Indeed, I believe that Africa’s challenges are Africa’s opportunities,” he added.
The maiden series of the Africa Prosperity Dialogues kicked off on Thursday, January 26, and will end on Saturday, January 28.
The serial event, also dubbed the Kwahu Summit, involves captains of industry, entrepreneurs, economists, bankers and other business leaders in Africa taking part in three days of discussion about what needs to be done next to expand trade and wealth creation across the continent.
