There’s an old proverb that says, “Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.” In a similar way, African nations need to find a way to long-term fixes for their people instead of offering ineffective, short-term assistance. And the way to do that is with jobs.

Host, John Akhile, author of Unleashed: a New Paradigm of African Trade with the World, explains that the main objective of African leaders, if they want to create a booming economy, is to focus on job creation and provide a way for their people to sustain themselves.
