Firoz Rasul will be the panel speaker at RSA event

Wealth creation in the developing world: Is Africa a lost cause?

2nd Oct 2008; 18:00

Event Venue:RSA 8 John Adam Street London WC2N 6EZ

Why has Africa failed to enjoy the fruits of the globalisation of the past quarter century, whilst regions such as South East Asia and India have enjoyed a rapid growth in prosperity? Is aid the answer – or the problem? What can be learned from comparing countries such as Ghana and Malaysia, who were on an economic par when they achieved independence fifty years ago, but now have vastly differing economies?

Examining factors from the importance of political stability, leadership and good governance, to trade, investment and aid policies at regional, national and global levels, our panel will consider: what will it take to set Africa on the path to stable and sustainable economic growth?

Our panel of speakers will include Firoz Rasul, president, the Aga Khan University, Richard Dowden, director, Royal African Society and Anver Versi, editor, African Business.

One thought

  1. I warmly welcome this article and would very much like to know the contents of Firoz Rasul’s speech at the RSA event.
    Many Ismailis still fear returning to Africa for reasons of security, stability and economic oppurtunities.Recently, Mowlana Hazir Imam has mentioned the oppurtunities in East Africa and how we could make this work for us.
