Dr Frannie Leautier discussed the effect of the Covid-19 on African economies


In an interview with CDC’s Colin Buckley and Peter Maila, Dr Frannie Leautier discussed the effect of the Covid-19 on African economies.
Examining the trends that have emerged across the continent because of the pandemic, Frannie mentioned the impact of Covid-19 on various sectors including Tourism, Energy and Education.

Backed by Africa’s praiseworthy response to Covid-19 as well as Ebola a few years back, Frannie highlighted the continent great but underestimated capacity to mitigate risk. Advocating for investors to trust Africa’s potential, she presented a continent of vast natural resources, young, dynamic population and the potential for innovation and scale thanks to the greenfield nature of Africa.
