This week on Africa 360…

Posted on: Thu 20 Jun 2013

The growing gap between developed and developing countries has dominated international relations for decades. This gap has led to constant capital inflow from the developed countries to those in the Third World, including Africa, with the goal of helping them overcome their chronic under-development problems and reducing the gap between the rich and the poor. However, some observers are of the view that decades of foreign aid in Africa have done little to change people’s lives,  and that it has left the continent even worse off than before. Although Africa has experienced significant economic growth in the past decade, some African countries are still lagging behind in the development stakes.

This week eNCA Africa Editor Chris Maroleng focuses on the impact of development aid in Africa, and more importantly, what Africa can do to make itself self-sufficient. This is the first  episode of a two-part series that will focus on development aid in Africa. His guests are Jay Naidoo, from The Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition, South Africa’s Minister of Trade and Industry, Rob Davies, and  OXFAM International Executive Director, Winnie Byanyima. Also joining the discussion is Charles Abugre, Africa Regional Director for the United Nations Millennium Campaign.
