The President of the African Development Bank, Akinwumi Adesina, sees financing of Africa’s entrepreneurs and infrastructure as the driving force of his management at AfDB.

This he has demonstrated through the various initiatives the continental development finance institution has created to support small and medium startups, as well as large corporates operating across Africa.

Adesina, who spearheaded the cassava bread revolution as former Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development under President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration, believes that African economy may not attain the desired growth targets to compete with Europe, America and Asia, if the quality of its infrastructure, human capital and financial empowerment of its youth fail to hit global standards.

In this interview with Daily Sun at Willard Hotels in Washington DC, USA, on the sidelines of the just concluded Annual Meetings of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank, the AfDB boss spoke on a wide range of issues, including women empowerment, infrastructure finance , education opportunities for African youths and entrepreneurs, among others.
