From the desk of the President and Chairman
WELCOME TO THE AFRICAN BUSINESS ROUNDTABLE. Within the pages of the ABR profile you will learn about one of the most outstanding and innovative Pan African Business organizations in the world, and we are hoping that you will become a part of the ABR.
I can tell you that I am optimistic about the future of Africa, because I see a vibrant and knowledgeable group of African business people, entrepreneurs, educators, thinkers who have an understanding of the Pan African vision of collective self-reliance, unity and the fact that the fate of all African peoples and countries are intertwined and that both continental Africans and those in the Diaspora share not just a common history but a common destiny as well. We have successful businessmen and women who are aware of the need for good governance, the development of operational capacity, transparency and the rule of law, and they are working both inside and outside of Africa for the betterment of our continent. ABR has positioned itself to be at the forefront of this global movement for the development of Africa and her people. We are celebrating the fact that we all in the Private sector are moving in strategic ways to ensure the future of our beloved continent.
