“A‌ ‌pandemic‌ ‌took‌ ‌our‌ ‌globalized‌ ‌world‌ ‌by‌ ‌surprise‌ ‌and‌ ‌stopped‌ ‌some‌ ‌of‌ ‌the‌ ‌most‌ ‌active‌ ‌hubs‌ ‌dead‌ ‌in‌ ‌their‌ ‌tracks,” a note from the organisers said.

“As‌ ‌New‌ ‌York,‌ ‌Paris,‌ ‌London,‌ ‌and‌ ‌other‌ ‌economy-defining‌ ‌cities‌ ‌froze,‌ ‌in‌ ‌Africa‌ ‌the‌ ‌dynamic‌ ‌development‌ ‌has‌ ‌not‌ ‌slowed‌ ‌down.‌

“A‌ fresh‌ ‌wind‌ ‌of‌ ‌youthful‌ ‌countries‌ ‌are‌ ‌too‌ ‌strong‌ ‌to‌ ‌hold‌ ‌down.‌ They‌ ‌have‌ ‌seen‌ ‌mistakes‌ ‌made‌ ‌in‌ ‌other‌ ‌parts‌ ‌of‌ ‌the‌ ‌world‌ ‌and‌ ‌are‌ ‌avoiding‌ ‌them,‌ ‌taking‌ ‌the‌ ‌best‌ ‌of‌ ‌technology‌ ‌and‌ ‌entrepreneurship‌ ‌to‌ ‌move‌ ‌ahead‌ ‌swiftly.‌ ‌
