Live events podcast: Africa's economic growth in a new global context

Written by Dirk Willem te Velde

Africa is the world's second fastest-growing region but ensuring this growth is sustainable and reduces inequalities must be at the forefront of policy-making in order to improve well-being and boost industrialisation.

This live events podcast brings together experts to discuss the major economic and social trends that are impacting on African development, and their policy implications for the continent’s relations with Europe and the rest of the world.
