    I think the government can invest in developing Human Resources. Most times the financial resources are available but the Human capacity to execute ideas that will grow the economy of the country isn’t available.

      Wow, This is a great response. But then thinking, should a country’s investment in human resources be dependent only on their governments for the country’s development?

      This is a very important point. Developing the skillset to be able to do the jobs that a country needs is key. It would be great if every time a county gave a big project to any company, they insisted on training for the youth in that country so they could take on those projects in the future. Human resource development is key.

    Wow very interesting topic.

    Firstly, Most of our African countries are gender biased in the sense that women especially are not allowed to hold certain high ranchy positions in the society and are not also allowed to own lands. This hinders alot of employment and development opportunities. If this notion can be changed then I believe it will increase the rate of development.

    Again, tax rates for home and foreign investors in most African countries are usually very high. Entrepreneurs wishing to open companies and organisations turn to be levied with huge sum of taxes to pay and at the end of the day it discourages foreign investors to invest and develop the country. If the country can initiate a tax free period or a number of years for foreign investors, they will feel encouraged to invest and develop the said country.

      I agree although this brings the question of quality. Laws will have to be instituted to prevent people from bringing in crappy products. Then there is the issue of bribery and corruption – even when the laws are good they don’t always apply to all equally.

    It should start with reforming the electoral process so that they can get credible leaders that will have the courage to fight corruption. Secondly, Africans need to change their mindset about jobs and always run to the West to borrow or beg for aid.

    As they say, necessity is the mother of inventions. Africa and Africans need to come back and develop strong systems and invest more in refining their raw material. Without these, we will only be running in cycles

    This is an important and complex question. Developing a country starts with a massive mindset shift. The idea that wisdom lies in the old is archaic. The youth are the future and need to be a key part of any development initiative.

    African countries may not all be the same. Their challenges are unique and different however, in order to develop, countries need to learn from those who have navigated similar circumstances to grow their economies. Lessons from Singapore, Rwanda, China … will be helpful. A strategic initiative that holds the government and institutions accountable will be needed to keep focus on growth and development.

    A Vision plan (https://africanvibes.com/10-african-countries-with-vision-plans-that-will-dramatically-transform-them-in-the-next-10-years/) that incorporates input from the youth, diaspora, businesses, government and other key stakeholders is important.

    A good vision paired with a good and focused leader makes a good recipe for development.
