The World Bank Group Trade & Competitiveness Global Practice and the African Development Bank Group are reaching out to Africans living abroad to get their views on how they would like to contribute to the economic development of their country of origin. The findings from this survey will provide a better understanding of the African diaspora contributions to their countries of origin for the purposes of informing the World Bank Group, African Development Bank, development partners, and governments on policies and programs that can incentivize and engage Africans who are interested in trade, investment and mentorship opportunities.
