This is the Century of Africa. With 1.3 billion people and its rich natural resources, Africa has unlimited growth opportunities. Yet sea-to-land supply chain connectivity, both physically and digitally, still remains problematic in many parts of the continent. What role should Africa’s revitalised ports sector play to help unleash the continent’s true potential? Can the sector help convert Africa from a natural resource exporter and low-value import trader into a new global power?
