Africa’s Potential As A New Pole Of Global Growth



This roundtable discussion introduced the key findings of the Economic Report on Africa 2012 “Unleashing Africa’s Potential as a New Pole of Global Growth”. On this occasion, the discussion focused on the central challenges African countries must address for the continent to unleash its potential as a pole of global growth. Among other key goals, Africa needs to move towards a unified framework for negotiation and cooperation with emerging as well as old partners that will help African countries maximize gains in terms of trade, FDI, technology transfer, loans and aid, especially from China, Brazil, Korea and Turkey. Addressing this challenge will broaden the scope of integration, both in trade and investments, between Egypt and neighbors in Africa.
