Africa Must Provide Opportunities For All People To Reach Potential

Washington Post: The next steps for Africa to meet its potential
Kofi Annan, former U.N. secretary-general, and chair of the Kofi Annan Foundation and the Africa Progress Panel

“…Africa will only become a stable and vibrant partner for the United States, and the world, if it provides opportunities for all its people. This requires peaceful, stable, and democratic government. My experience has taught me that there can be no long-term development without security and no long-term security without development. Nor will any society remain prosperous for long without the rule of law and respect for human rights. That is the enduring lesson of the American experience that Africa should aim to emulate and that the United States should seek to encourage” (8/3).
