Talk Africa: Industrializing Africa

It has been said that manufacturing in Africa is only for the brave.

With a declining contribution to Africa’s economies in the past three decades, manufacturing’s share of GDP in the continent stood at just 11% in 2014.

Beatrice Marshall and her panel of experts explore the opportunities and challenges of Africa’s industrialization in this episode of Talk Africa.
