Youth Connekt Africa Summit 2021
Dr. Evans Duah speaks on "Africa's Informal Economy and Emerging Employment Pathways"
This year's Youth Connekt Africa Summit was held in Accra, Ghana, for the first time under the auspices of the President of Ghana, H.E Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, and the President of Rwanda, H.E Paul Kagame.
The summit convened over 2,000 delegates at the Accra International Conference Centre and over 15,000 virtual participants from over 35 African countries to engage in conversations geared towards empowering and equipping the youth of the continent.
Honoured to speak at this prestigious summit was Dr. Evans Duah. He had the honour to moderate a panel discussion on the topic "Africa's Informal Economy and Emerging Employment Pathways".
The session enlightened the attendees on the current developments of employment pathways, how these pathways can be supported by policy, programme, and investment, and how technology is enabling progressive and inclusive formalization of the informal economy.
Dr. Duah, giving his closing remarks, expressed that he believes that for Africans to have an economically empowering environment, the youth must be involved by focusing on solutions and value propositions.
