This can be a Century of African Growth and Opportunity, World Bank President Says Following Africa Visit

 

KAMPALA, August 20, 2009--World Bank Group President Robert Zoellick ended a three-nation African tour last week by affirming that despite setbacks to Africa’s steady progress as a result of the financial crisis, this could be a century of African opportunity and growth.

“We need multiple poles of growth and that will make for a more balanced international economy; and there’s no reason Africa can’t be one of those poles,” Zoellick told journalists in Entebbe, Uganda at the end of his trip.
