Why is there so little industry in Africa? Over the past forty years, industry has moved from the developed to the developing world, yet Africa’s share of global manufacturing has fallen from about 3 percent in 1970 to less than 2 percent in 2014. Industry is important to low-income countries. It is good for economic growth, job creation, and poverty reduction. Made in Africa: Learning to Compete in Industry outlines a new strategy to help African industry compete in global markets. This book draws on case studies and econometric and qualitative research from Africa and emerging Asia to understand what drives firm-level competitiveness in low-income countries. The results show that while traditional concerns such as infrastructure, skills, and the regulatory environment are important, they alone will not be sufficient for Africa to industrialize. The book also addresses how industrialization strategies will need to adapt to the region’s growing resource abundance.

From humble beginnings in Ghana, a young girl dared to dream an impossible dream of becoming a doctor. Her inspiration was the plight of women who suffered needless distress resulting from inadequate healthcare. With faith in God, she worked very hard, made sacrifices, and pursued excellence. The dream was frustrated in Ghana, but a door opened for its resuscitation in America. She took advantage of it. There were detours and hardships, but she never gave up. After about twenty years, the dream came true. Along the way, she married, raised four wonderful children, and earned an MS, PhD, and finally an MD at a ripe age of forty four. She is now equipped to go back to help improve women's health in Ghana. America is truly a land of opportunity, but one must be willing to pay the price to take advantage of it. Theresa was truly made in Africa and she made it in America-literally through blood, sweat, and tears-all by trusting God!

This study presents the findings of original field research into the design, practice, and varied outcomes of industrial policy in three sectors in Ethiopia: cement, leather and leather products, and floriculture. Given that there is a single industrial strategy, why do its outcomes vary across sectors? To what extent is this a function of the specific market and political economy features of each sector? The book examines industrial structures and associated global value chains to demonstrate the challenges faced by African firms in international markets.

The African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) represents a historic opportunity for the continent to boost intra-African trade and accelerate structural transformation. However, this relies on a critical policy instrument: the effective implementation of preferential trade liberalization among the AfCFTA members. Whether in practice African firms will utilize tariff preferences under the AfCFTA depends on a critical factor: rules of origin (RoO) and the net benefits of complying with them. This report argues for the adoption of flexible RoO and a strengthening of institutional capacities to ensure an impartial, transparent, predictable, consistent and neutral implementation of agreed RoO.

The signing of Naby Keïta for almost £53m in August 2017 was the third time in the space of 14 months that Liverpool broke the transfer record for an African player. But while Senegal’s Sadio Mané and Mohamed Salah of Egypt helped Jürgen Klopp’s side reach the Champions League final in 2018, Guinea midfielder Keïta took time to adapt to his new surroundings. Tracking his first season in English football and featuring interviews with Klopp and those closest to Liverpool’s three biggest African stars, Ed Aarons tells the story of the thrilling 2018/19 campaign that ended with the club’s sixth European crown after just missing out to Manchester City in the thrilling Premier League title race. Yet the historic season which saw Mané and Salah share the Premier League’s Golden Boot with Arsenal’s Gabon striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang would not have been possible had it not been for those who blazed the trail before them. From Arthur Wharton - the first player born in Africa to appear in the Football League - to Steve Mokone, Albert Johanneson, Brian and Mark Stein, Peter Ndlovu, Christopher Wreh, Lucas Radebe, Jay Jay Okocha, Didier Drogba, Yaya Touré and Riyad Mahrez, Made in Africa tells the story of the pioneers who changed the face of English football forever.

Some people visit Africa once in their lifetime to marvel at expansive savannas or subtropical woodlands. Their exotic destination was my home. I grew up completely spoiled by the accessibility of wild places. Africa was my playground. I'd taken a drink from the source of the Zambezi River and stood in its spray at the Victoria Falls. I'd seen waves kiss the beaches of Lake Malawi, caught my first tiger fish in Lake Tanganyika, visited black townships in South Africa and knew about 'apartheid.' I'd eaten elephant, hippo, and various village foods I didn't recognize. But in America, I was an alien with no desire to fit in. Ihave a Zambian birth certificate and an American passport. How does one qualify as beingfroma place? Surprising and hilarious in turns, Made in Africa is the story of my quest for identity, belonging and home. Who said an African-American has to be black?"

Made in Africa presents the findings of original field research into the design, practice, and varied outcomes of industrial policy in the cement, leather and leather products, and floriculture sectors in Ethiopia. It explores how and why the outcomes of industrial policy are shaped by particular factors in these industries. It also examines industrial structures and associated global value chains to demonstrate the challenges faced by African firms in international markets. The findings are discussed against the backdrop of 'industrial policy', which has recently found renewed favour among economists and international organizations, and of the history of thought about and practice in industrialization. The book seeks to learn from the failures and successes in the three sectors, all of them functioning under the umbrella of a single industrial strategy. It argues that an effective industrial policy requires a more interventionist state than most development economists would accept, including those recently claiming to champion a 'new industrial policy'. Moreover, it argues that success lies in the interactions among policy, specific industrial structures, and institutions. Specifically, a successful policy, he posits should maximize linkage effects, but will founder in the absence of a clear understanding of the political economy of each sector.

In 1969 Gerhard Kubik chanced to encounter a Mozambican labor migrant, a miner in Transvaal, South Africa, tapping a cipendani, a mouth-resonated musical bow. A comparable instrument was seen in the hands of a white Appalachian musician who claimed it as part of his own cultural heritage. Through connections like these Kubik realized that the link between these two far-flung musicians is African-American music, the sound that became the blues. Such discoveries reveal a narrative of music evolution for Kubik, a cultural anthropologist and ethnomusicologist. Traveling in Africa, Brazil, Venezuela, and the United States, he spent forty years in the field gathering the material for Africa and the Blues. In this book, Kubik relentlessly traces the remote genealogies of African cultural music through eighteen African nations, especially in the Western and Central Sudanic Belt. Included is a comprehensive map of this cradle of the blues, along with 31 photographs gathered in his fieldwork. The author also adds clear musical notations and descriptions of both African and African American traditions and practices and calls into question the many assumptions about which elements of the blues were "European" in origin and about which came from Africa. Unique to this book is Kubik's insight into the ways present-day African musicians have adopted and enlivened the blues with their own traditions. With scholarly care but with an ease for the general reader, Kubik proposes an entirely new theory on blue notes and their origins. Tracing what musical traits came from Africa and what mutations and mergers occurred in the Americas, he shows that the African American tradition we call the blues is truly a musical phenomenon belonging to the African cultural world.
