An Initiative of German Industry for Future Leaders from Africa

George Smith-Koomson


I should emphasize this: Africa is the next frontier in the global economy, and what we are doing here is to learn, convene dialogues and foster networks through this initiative. These efforts will enrich our potential to contribute to development of Africa. Overall as a Young Leader, I have learnt to think like a German, work like an American and have a heart like an African.
