In a recent video production, I brought together experts on Economic development to discuss the opportunities in East Africa. The production is in more depth described at the Misum event page. The session started with a screening of an abridged version of the film, followed by a live Q&A with some of the experts interviewed.The video production was made possible with the help of financial support from MTI Investment SE, Scania, Swedfund and SWEACC.
