IGS was very pleased to join the Heller School in cosponsoring a day-long conference on Africa’s development. The economic growth in Nigeria, Rwanda, and throughout East Africa shows that this is probably more than just a commodity boom: we might be looking a real, long-term expansion.
Which leads to some interesting questions. Why is growth now so much more robust? And what can be done to make it sustainable — in both the sense of enduring and healthy? Does the African diaspora have a significant role to play?
