In the West, we often bring prejudice with regards to Africa instead of recognising its potential for collaborating and encouraging each other's strengths which in time eventually will help eliminate each other's weaknesses. In Africa, as well as other less economically developed countries, the increasing birth rate is exceeding the economic growth which means more and more people will be born into poverty. Whereas, in the West, the population is declining, and specifically Europe, there is an aging workforce. This is further heightened with an increasing need for IT Experts due to our new digital economy, meaning there will be many IT jobs available in the western world that cannot be filled. In less economically developed countries, such as Nigeria, because of the low standard of living and the vast young population, including its proximity and closeness in culture and time zone, Africa seems to be a perfect fit for this problem.
Therefore, when we speak about race we intend to promote inclusivity and diversity within our global economy. This requires Western companies, to include those all over the globe, to overcome each other's weaknesses and recognise that in order to prosper we must come together, regardless of race.
