Africa Industrialization Day: How Can We Promote Industrialization In Africa? - African Vibes Magazine

Today is Africa Industrialization Day. Obviously, Africa needs to be economically self-sustaining to gain the respect of the rest of the world. One sure path to that goal is industrialization. Here is an example to further buttress the importance of industrialization. About 70 percent of the world cocoa beans come from four West African countries namely Cameroon, Ghana, Ivory Coast, and Nigeria. However, the price of cocoa per metric ton is only about $2,200 as of 2019. Interestingly, the chocolate industry is worth more than $100 billion. If Africa had the right industries, they can convert their cocoa into chocolate and tap into this $100 billion global industry. The big question today is how can we promote industrialization in Africa? What is the greatest challenge to industrialization in Africa?

The Africa Industrialization Day celebration set for November 20th every year is targeted at enhancing economic development in Africa.

In Africa, when people die, particularly people of great influence, mourners almost always dwell on their good qualities.

Inasmuch as many people say he was one of Africa's greatest leaders, others accuse him of human rights abuses. However, the big question now is, "Was he a hero or a villain?"

Jerry Rawlings may be dead but Africa—particularly Ghanaians—continue to live his legacy. However, was he really a hero or a villain?

Our Story

The attitudes of many people in the world is greatly influenced by the media. How Africa, Africans and African Immigrants are portrayed in these mediums often stereotypes and reinforces perceptions of aid, disease and war.

When Belle Niba first came to the United States as a teenager, she struggled with the story that was being told about where she was from. Africa was always this dark place with endless wars, disease, poverty and strife. Her country of origin, Cameroon didn’t stray too far from the stereotype but the mainstream narrative was one sided and omitted stories of resilience, hard work, determination and success. The stories of ordinary Africans doing extraordinary things.

That’s when she decided to take matters into her own hands and fill the void. She created African Vibes, a general interest lifestyle publication, to counter the negative stereotypes about Africa and Africans perpetrated by mainstream media.

The publication reaches across the borders of national origin to engage bi-cultural individuals who have a desire to stay connected to Africa through stories that are hopeful, inspiring, educational and motivating.
