Message to the African diaspora: It’s time to do business with Africa
Trade and investment throughout the African Diaspora will create jobs, healthcare, infrastructure and wealth. Booker T. Washington told us more than 100 years ago that if we start our own businesses and begin to do business with each other, we would survive and indeed prosper. We should adhere to his wisdom and make it so that it becomes a campaign to incubate businesses wherever we are and start doing business with each other globally.
Africa, the land of our origin is blessed with more natural resources than any other continent on this earth. It is only fitting for us to use that as a basis for our newfound entrepreneurship.Every child of African descent should have a focus on doing business in some form with Africa and creating business relationships with businesspersons from Africa. That will be the key to our commonality.
