Abstract:

Africa is undergoing many positive soft infrastructure developments such as improved rule of law, reduced corruption, improved trade policies and so on changes that are reassuring investors that Africa is indeed open for business. Of note is that some of these changes are prompted by factors not previously considered in development strategies. Jacqueline Munalula Musiitwa addresses the role of netizens, the growing and better organized private sector and financial diplomacy. However, in order for Africa's prosperity to be sustained, it is essential for African governments to create their own strategies that emphasize inclusive development. These strategies must focus on long-term, multi-disciplinary planning as well as nationalist treaty drafting.
