Why is it important?

We explain the importance of human capital development in helping African countries to benefit from AfCFTA.


It was a great pleasure to write this article with my host professor, Grietjie Verhoef, with whom I share a passion for Africa's developmental issues. We wholeheartedly believe that the true wealth of Africa resides in the continent's human capital.
