African business leaders meet…

and no, it’s not at TED Global this time.

I found this article on the BBC’s website about a group of African business leaders meeting in London ahead of the G8 summit to discuss their own ideas and solutions…Discussion included the limitations of aid and the G8’s contribution, the importance of trade, and the desire for African nations for independence and autonomy when it comes to their own economic future.

I love this quote from the Ugandan President, Yoweri Museveni:

“There was a rumour that the G8 needed advice…We have gathered here to become consultants to the G8.”

You tell ’em!!
