Only Africa can generate the kind of positivity, colour, vibrancy and creativity witnessed in London the past two days. Africa is a force to be reckoned with.
21 countries were represented at the Africa-UK Investment Summit, all eager to transform their countries. They demonstrated a clarity of vision as they effortlessly leapfrog old methodologies to embrace the digital age.
The UK can make a difference for themselves and equally, can make a positive difference in Africa, but the UK is not a front-runner in this role.
South Africa is perfectly positioned as a gateway to Africa, but will need active engagement and rapid action in order to capitalise on the available opportunities.
