Extensive article on Africa Works! in 'BerichtenBuitenland'

cover BerichtenBuitenland'BerichtenBuitenland', monthly magazine for the Dutch agrarian business sector and issued by the Netherlands Ministry of Economic Affairs, gives extensive attention to the Africa Works! conference in its September issue ('Africa special'). The conference will be held on 16 and 17 October. Ton Dietz, director of the African Studies Centre, is quoted as saying that during the first edition of Africa Works! in 2012, mutual trust was built between scholars, entrepreneurs and policy makers, and that during this year's edition, the time is ripe to move ahead and create real partnerships. NABC director Bob van der Bijl emphasizes that a large number of entrepreneurs from Africa will be present at the 2014 conference, making it possible to talk 'with' Africa in stead of 'about'. Read the full article (p. 6-7), and more references to AfricaWorks! in other articles in the magazine.
