On 15th July 2021, via a FREE online event, Future Africa Forum launched a policy brief entitled “Africa Beyond COVID-19”. As lead for the industry and employment chapter of the document, I spoke during the launch about how we can build more resilient economies in Africa and create much-needed jobs.

 

“Before the outbreak of COVID-19, the future of work was already looking incredibly precarious and most graduates are struggling to find employment – the number of Africans out of work remains stubbornly high. After seeing the devastating impact this global pandemic has had on African economies, it is increasingly apparent that solving the issue of unemployment by driving industrialisation will be the defining factor in terms of the African continent reaching its full potential.” – Maudo Jallow
