Many African nations rely too heavily on aid money to keep their nations afloat, and even with that money, too many citizens are stuck in abject poverty. It is time for leaders of African nations to step up and find ways to generate their own income and employ their mass numbers of young, unemployed people.

In today’s podcast, our host, John Akhile Sr. author of Unleashed: A New Paradigm of African Trade with the World discusses the importance of initiating manufacturing and processing for exports to spark economic growth, just like the Asian Tigers have previously done. Each country has plenty of resources and a strong labor force that can be tapped into to create a successful path to economic prosperity.
