Engaging the African Diaspora in Trade, Investment & Skills Forum

The potential wealth and talent existing in the African Diaspora is enormous. Some researchers estimate that US $53 billion is saved on an annual basis by the African Diaspora. Additionally, it is estimated that by 2040 Africa will have a larger workforce than China or India. All of this will require targeted new enterprise growth in areas that can enhance food supply, healthcare services, and educational solutions, particular in the area of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) within local communities.

The first Annual African Diaspora Trade Forum, hosted by the World Bank Trade & Competitiveness and African Development Bank (AfDB) will bring together donors, entrepreneurs, investors and others who are looking to create trade, investment and mentorship opportunities in Sub-Saharan Africa.
