Voice of America quotes Africa Center Director J. Peter Pham on the key issues that will be discussed at the US-Africa Leaders Summit:
J. Peter Pham said such growth is aided by Africa’s natural resources and fast-growing population, which already tops one billion people. He said Africa’s population eventually may exceed that of India or China and change global markets.
“It [Africa] is a very young population — by mid-century a quarter of the world’s workers will be in Africa. So it will be a locus of production and jobs as well as a potential marketplace,” said Pham.
