Africa’s Pulse: COVID-19 and the Future of Work in Africa

As the COVID-19 crisis has changed the work landscape across the world, African countries now have the opportunity to harness the power of digital technologies, and invest in the future of Africa’s workforce. With Africa’s young population driving innovation across the continent, they will help to create more job opportunities, and will need the support of forward-thinking governments and the private sector to make their vision a reality. Join World Bank Africa Chief Economist Albert Zeufack for the launch of the Spring 2021 edition of Africa’s Pulse, the region’s biannual macroeconomic analysis. In a discussion with Dimpho Lekgeu, Zeufack will provide an update on the macroeconomic situation in African countries amid the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, and take a closer look at jobs and the future of work as crucial elements of economic recovery post-pandemic.
