"As the world faces an existential threat occasioned by COVID-19, experts have projected that Africa may lose nearly $200-billion. Already, several small businesses are the verge of extinction, while others have lost about 60% of their revenue. This, therefore, calls for urgent attention," says the summit.

African Leadership magazine has indicated that it is putting together the Africa Summit to galvanize bold ideas towards solving Africa's coronavirus-induced challenges.
