On June 16 from 3:00 pm and until 4:30 pm we had a very interesting ETTG-ODI webinar event on how African countries will face considerable challenges in the recovery. African countries were also able to learn from how the pandemic unfolded across the world from China to Italy and through Europe. Contrary to commonplace narratives about aiding Africa, recent events highlight opportunities for Europe to learn from Africa.
