[Video interview] How to ignite a growth revolution in Africa – Jakkie Cilliers discusses his new book Africa First!
More about the book!
What stops Africa, with its abundant natural resources, from capitalising on its boundless potential?
In Africa First! Igniting a Growth Revolution, well-known Africa analyst Jakkie Cilliers uses 11 scenarios to unpack, in concrete terms, how the continent can ignite a growth revolution that will take millions out of poverty and into employment.
The challenges the continent faces – competing in a globalised world, delivering health care and education, feeding growing populations and grappling with climate change – demand far-sighted policies and determined leadership. Cilliers offers achievable solutions based on African realities.
Authoritative and engaging, this book offers a roadmap for how Africa can catch up with the rest of the world.
Cilliers was a guest on SABC’s Books on Point programme to unpack the ideas presented in Africa First!
