The Africa Channel plans to make Nigerian films available in the US, Canada and the Caribbean in early 2022, Brendan Gabriel, the channel’s ... vice president of production and creative director, tells The Africa Report.
North Africa, which is well supplied with power, is the first region likely to industrialise, led by Morocco and Egypt, Robertson says in London.
Robertson challenges the conventional wisdom that a young workforce is necessarily a good thing. More important, he argues, is how many children those young people are going to have. A family size of five or children, he says, means that all of a family’s income has to be used to meet immediate needs. That makes it impossible for a large savings pool to be created, meaning that banks are unable to cheaply finance either the private sector or government.
