“I just read your remarkable book. I share the same conviction and optimism with you

about the future of African countries if their leaders have the vision to jumpstart export-

oriented industrialization by using their abundant natural and human resources. Hope that

the messages of your book will spread to leaders and intellectuals in Africa, take root in

their hearts and convince them to take actions along the line of your suggestions.

“Every developing country, including those in Africa, has the potential to grow

dynamically, transforming herself from a poor, agrarian economy into a middle- or even

high-income economy in one or two generations. The key is for the government to

facilitate the growth of sectors for which they can quickly become competitive

internationally with what they currently have such as abundant supply of labor and/or

nature resources. John I. Akhile Sr.’s Unleashed: A New Paradigm of African Trade with

the World is a book full of practical insights about how to make such quick wins

happened in Africa. This book is must reading for anyone who concerns about the

poverty reduction and prosperity in Africa.”
