The World Economic Forum ended in South Africa on Thursday with African leaders recognizing that economic prosperity and peace go hand in hand, and the inclusion of women would make the continent more prosperous.

At least 10 countries participated in the forum despite protests from others over the xenophobic attacks that exploded just days before the meetings began.

According to President Yoweri Museveni of Uganda, Africa needs to put structures in place and ensure that a strong middle class exists.

He said economic development would strengthen peace and stability in Africa.

Ethiopia‘s first female president, Sahle-Work Zewde, said women need to be at the table where decisions are being made.

She said where women have been at the table, things have been better.

It was not, however, clear how African leaders intend to boost the continent’s economy.
