As an interpreter, I have participated in many high-level conferences. This one comes at the right moment; a time when the continent need intellectual contributions from all its sons and daughters in order to emerge out of poverty. The organization of this conference is, for us African intellectuals, a unique opportunity to discuss our continent’s economic issues. It’s time for the continent to take off given that it has the necessary resources to improve upon its economy. Speakers during the conference spoke of Africa’s renaissance and its economic integration. Emphasis should be laid on intra-African trade, mass literacy, professional training, infrastructure and health.
