Is the United States of Africa already here? Business in Focus asks: “If the idea of creating a United States of Africa is to create wealth, then we may argue that it is already here. What Africa needs is to strengthen existing structures, invest more in ICT and establish structures that support international trade and wealth creation through value addition.”
I like the approach http://businessinfocus.blogspot.com has taken i.e looking at the issue from a different angle than what all power hungry politicians are fighting for. Looking at the issue with a sober mind, i also think that the US of Africa is already here. In a follow up comments by readers posted on the same blog (READ http://businessinfocus.blogspot.com/2007/07/is-united-states-of-africa-is-already.html) , people have varying thoughts but its clear that only trade will work in Africa.
