Today, 30 to 40 per cent of Africa’s jobs are in the services industries. A figure that will only increase by another 10 to 20 per cent during the years to come. “In tomorrow’s construction, retail and hospitality industries – Africa’s three biggest sectors –learning by heart no longer does the job”, says Devang Vussonji at Dalberg Global Development Advisors. His plea: “What we need are soft skills like critical thinking, teamwork, creativity and a customer-focused mind-set.”
