The event was held at the Kenyatta International Conference Centre, Nairobi Kenya.

He said there was a need to give Africa’s young people a sense that there was a future and that promises could be made and delivered.

His words: “We are in a new place where the world has changed so dramatically and particularly in the past 10 years, where we have robotic, artificial intelligence; what sort of education makes sense to create job opportunities today?

“This is the time to think through the educational curriculum and to decide how this curriculum will be relevant and would deliver the sort of persons that we want to deliver and create the sort of opportunities that we require for the jobs that will be available.

The vice president participated in the session alongside African Union Special Envoy and Former President of the African Development Bank Donald Kaberuka, and Deputy Director of Cabinet for the Minister in charge of promoting Small and Medium Enterprises in Côte d’Ivoire, Hafou Toure.
