The population of Africa is about 900 million, with incomes expected to grow 4-5% over the next decade. By 2050, it is destined to have the world’s largest and youngest labor force, providing a rapidly growing opportunity for skills creation — essential to attract foreign investment and support growth of local production. Today, intra-African trade accounts for only 15% of the continent’s product.

In this episode of the Better Question podcast, EYQ Fellow Chris Meyer is joined by Nicola Kleyn, Dean, Gordon Institute of Business Science, University of Pretoria, and Ajen Sita, CEO, EY Africa.
