Abstract:Africa's destiny lies squarely on the shoulders of its leaders who must develop self-reliant initiatives that are sustainable over the long-term. Under the auspices of the Global Coalition for Africa one laudable attempt has been made to try to guide African nations towards defining and committing themselves to the kind of vision that would lead to the development of strategies that will address the primary economic and political issues facing Africa on the eve of the 21st century, viz. leadership, institutions, civil society, restructuring the nation-State, cultural values and Africa's perception of the world, capacity building, science and technology, economic performance and reform, natural resources and environment, and the role of government.
