Africa Prosperity Network officials have earmarked 28th and 29th October as date for the AFRICA PROSPERITY’S KWAHU Summit at Rock City Hotel in Accra, Ghana. The announcement was made during a joint press conference on Friday held on the sideline of a two-day Africa Soft Power conference in Kigali, Rwanda.
“The focus of the Network is to integrate the Private Sector into the Africa Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA), already ratified by 43 countries. Other objectives include establishing Africa which is aid-free alongside improving the living standards of Africans,” said Hannah Akuwu, Executive Secretary of Africa Prosperity Network.
“African leaders across all sectors will be convening here to decide for Africa on the ways, means and tools that we think that will lead to strategic networking and communications that will guide an Africa Prosperity Agenda,” observed Ms Akuwu.
Africa Prosperity rides on the back of AfCFTA and intends to be a wider platform and Convention for Africa Diaspora, Academia, political and business leaders.
Ms Akuwu and partners argue that it is meaningless to discuss African problems and challenges from outside the Continent.
The Africa Soft Power Project (ASP) that was originally founded as a virtual event during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, seeks to establish the continent’s creative and knowledge industries on the world stage alongside promoting May as the Month of Africa.
