Washington, DC, United States, 2014/05/06 - Talent Africa Series, a series of discussions organized by LDI Africa, provides information on how overseas professionals can connect with volunteer service and employment opportunities in Africa - LDIAfrica.org.
The annual remittances of African diaspora to the continent is hitting a record number of $60 billion according to the World Bank. US-Africa trade relations as well as foreign direct investments to Africa are on an upward trajectory. This unprecedented inflow of capital to the continent has marked a new era for Africa, making it possible for resources and opportunities to intersect. But sadly, the limited availability of indigenous skilled-talent still holds the continent back from reaching its full potential.
The Talent Africa Series are discussions organized by LDI Africa on how overseas professionals particularly in the U.S. can connect with volunteer-service and employment opportunities in Africa.
