There were several noteworthy things that happened this past month: a military coup d’état unseated President Mugabe of Zimbabwe, Switzerland has agreed to release $350 million dollars back to Nigeria, and a UNIDO’s General Assembly event was held in Vienna, Austria.

In this episode, our host, John Akhile, author of Unleashed: A New Paradigm of African Trade with the World, discusses the past month’s events and argues that African nations indeed have a place in the world as exporting countries. He explains how a form of offset can benefit African nations if they take the leap to try it. However, it is just one strategy, and African leaders must look for solutions wherever they can find them. They should set ambitious goals; even if they fall a little short, any improvement would be better than none.
