Tweeting the Facing Africa's Future plenary at #WEFAfrica

In delivering on Africa's Promise, Africa needs an aspirational and inspirational set of youth. The closing plenary for the World Economic Forum event on Africa focused on young people. There were a lot of younger attendees at the event, many of which were like me, Global Shapers. There were also the relatively older set of attendees, many of whom were Young Global Leaders. It was befitting that the closing plenary for the event featured younger panelists, 3 of which were Global Shapers. It was dubbed "Facing Africa's Future Significant challenges to Africa's resilience".

The panelists were Martyn Davies, Chief Executive Officer, Frontier Advisory, South Africa; Young Global Leader; Global Agenda Council on China Anne Githuku-Shongwe, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Afroes Transformational Games, South Africa; as well as Global Shapers Aminata Niang, Manager, Marketing and Sales, Tambaroua Business Farming, Mali; Rapelang Rabana, Founder, ReKindle Learning, South Africa and Younes Slaoui, Consultant, Strategy and Development, Attijariwafa Bank, Morocco. The session was moderated and chaired by Eric Kacou, Co-Founder, Entrepreneurial Solutions Partners (ESPartners), USA; Young Global Leader; Global Agenda Council on Fostering Entrepreneurship.
