Poor government leadership and spending have been a detriment to the economic development of African countries for far too long. Government funds need to be invested in promising companies that create sustainable economic growth.
In this episode, our host, John Akhile, author of Unleashed: A New Paradigm of African Trade with the World, dives into some of the root causes behind why champion companies, by and large, do not exist in Africa. This leads to a very real discussion of how African leaders through poor leadership, wasteful government projects, and mismanaged funds, have put themselves at a steep disadvantage in the global arena. Listen to find out what John thinks African leaders need to focus on to fuel economic development.
