The economic turmoil in China has rocked markets around the world and

Africa has not been spared the upheaval. Many African nations are now

concerned that Chinese demand for its oil and other resources could dry up.

Does Africa need to look more inward in financing its huge infrastructure

deficit?

This panel event, involving leading market participants and African

government officials, discussed why the recent Chinese crisis should be a

wake-up call for African governments to redouble their efforts to address the

investment gap and the need to mobilise African money in financing Africa’s

huge infrastructure deficit to drive economic growth.
