OPINION: Technology and industrialisation in Africa

Kathy Davey, Africa investment analyst at Ashburton Investments, shares her views on the role of new technologies in driving industrialisation on the African continent.

Davey explains that it's not just new innovation and technologies driving this industrialisation, but it's also factors such as increased access to power, urbanisation and heightened intra-Africa trade.

The World Economic Forum on Africa is taking place in Kigali, Rwanda, from 11 to 13 May.
