African leaders must work together to address infrastructure challenges- Nana Addo
President Akufo-Addo has underscored the need for African countries to come together to find new ways of addressing infrastructural concerns.
Speaking at an Infrastructure Solution summit organised by the Africa Finance Corporation (AFC) in Abuja, Nigeria on Thursday, May 12, Akufo-Addo posited that leaders in Africa must demand an equal playing field on the global financial market to enable Africa adequately enhance efficient infrastructural development.
“It is absolutely important that we should expand the influence of the institutions like AFC, ADB. ADB has recently gone for recapitalization to enable it to be able to do more.
“The governments of the continent need to put our weight behind this attempt but we also equally need to address structural constraints in the global capital market in the world.”
The event is expected to provide a unique platform to address and overcome some of Africa’s historical challenges.
