Thank you, Shanta, for the short selection of African success stories. We hear everyday how China and India have overtaken Africa long ago in terms of economic development, we hear about global dependency, the role of unfair trade policy and and global markets. It all sounds as African coutries are helpless puppets at the mercy of industrial nations. It is about time to highlight some success stories which display how economic development takes place in African countries. The reasons for thoses successes are manifold. They can depend on economic conditions, the drive of individuals or even just fortunate combinations of different factors. What is certain, though, is that success stories for economic growth are definitely not solely the outcome of donor interventions. Thanks again for sharing some positive information for a change!
