Elumelu Urges For Trade, Investments Collaboration Among Africans
Chairman, Heirs Holdings, UBA Plc and Transcorp Plc, Tony Elumelu, has stressed that sustained investments in agriculture and energy can lead to economic transformation across the continent.
Speaking to the African business leaders at the 4th International African Development Forum in Casablanca held between February 24th and 25th, 2016 recently, Elumelu said while we are united by geography, North Africa is increasingly counted as Middle East.
“I come here today to embrace my North African brothers and sisters and also my francophone brothers and sisters represented here.
"African unity should be about shared bonds and trade. As we grow closer we will address the challenges caused by our trade barriers. I believe in Africa, and I believe in the power of entrepreneurship to deliver the future we all want for the continent- a future of stability and prosperity, with sustainable energy and food for all!” he noted.
