In partnership with Legatum Institute, we held our first roundtable event on “Prosperity and the African Diaspora” in London in January 2019. The discussion focused on creating pathways from poverty to prosperity for African nations and the contribution the diaspora and the international community can make to building these pathways. With the fastest growing population in the world, the 21st century offers Africa significant opportunities to grow and develop, coupled with significant strengthening of business environments. The roundtable offered an opportunity to discuss the best ways to harness that opportunity, and practical steps to promote and build prosperity.
