Last week, AB2020 joined a full house of guests and investors at London Capital Club for the book launch of The Convergence of Nations – a compilation of international analysis and opinion on Africa’s political, economic and social realities.
Compiled by Angolan-Swiss investor and entrepreneur Jean-Claude Bastos de Morais, The Convergence of Nations features a team of 31 authors from 15 nations illuminating Africa’s opportunities and challenges, and emphasising the continent’s huge potential for profiting from globalisation.
‘As always, Africa must aim high – this time we can and we will achieve our aims,’ says Dr Akinwumi Adesina, President of the African Development Bank who wrote the foreword.
‘This expertly written book will heighten international understanding of and interest in our continent. This is a compellingly realistic summary of all the big themes affecting Africa’s future, and I warmly commend it.’
