COVID-19 has transformed the current environment in regard to both healthcare and economic aspects. Through this unprecedented pandemic, economic systems were faced with a new realities and repercussions of the international economic situation (globalization, interconnection, interdependence, economic & social impacts).
Countries must improve their management of economic levers, distribution and management of the value chain and logistics, as well as work on economic agility and better distribution of wealth.
In this context, Africa must learn from the mistakes and successes made at the global level and respond in a united manner to this crisis in order to best protect its population and not see poverty & disparities increase on the continent. It must position itself as a continental and regional force ready to face its reality and make a thoughtful choice to ensure the best coordination during this crisis.
Beyond the need to respond effectively and quickly to the current crisis, this is an opportunity to be able to reflect on economic systems adapted to new realities that would benefit the population of the continent in a lasting and sustainable way, improving also their quality of life.
