This week’s podcast is dedicated to the World Economic Forum on Africa, which will take place in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, on 9-11 May. In the past 10 years, Africa has been home to six of the world’s ten fastest growing economies. There are still challenges on the continent but there is also tremendous opportunity which the world is harnessing.

We speak with Elsie Kanza, Head of Africa at the Forum, about her hopes for the continent. Alex Wong, Head of Centre for Business Engagement, discusses responsible mineral mining and infrastructure, and Alex Mung, Associate Director and Head of the Water Initiative, discusses the work being done on that front.
