Why governance matters

NAD 2014 - Key Note Dr Mo Ibrahim

Despite impressive economic figures in recent years most people in Africa are still poor. The only way for Africa to move forward is to ensure good governance – the way the economy, legal structures and institutions are managed.  Dr Ibrahim is the Founder and Chair of the Mo Ibrahim Foundation which supports good governance and exceptional leadership on the African continent.
