Africa’s Development Dynamics 2021: Digital Transformation for Quality Jobs
Can digitalisation create high-quality jobs? Can it make African economies more resilient to the global recession triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic? Based on the 2021 edition of the Africa’s Development Dynamics: Digital Transformation for Quality Jobs we will discuss these issues with policymakers and industrial leaders from Africa and Germany. Which policies can trigger large-scale job creation through digital transformation? How can African governments coordinate digital transformation policies at a regional level, while bridging spatial and social divides? How to ensure funding for economic recovery and transformation despite concerns over Africa’s debt sustainability? Finally, what is the best way to cooperate with the business sector and government in partner countries to succeed in this transformation?
