As part of the 2010 Annual Meeting of the Africa Progress Panel, the APP organized a debate moderated by the BBC’s Zeinab Badawi. The debate aims to draw attention to the state of Africa in 2010: the year of the World Cup on African soil, 10 year follow-up on the Millennium Declaration, and 5 year post the Gleneagles G8 Summit commitments.

Four panellists address issues in front of an informed audience consisting of experts on African governance, economics, social and political affairs, including distinguished African figures.

The panellists are:

•Kofi Annan, Chair of the Africa Progress Panel
•Petina Gappah, Zimbabwean writer, Winner of the Guardian First Book Award
•Linah Mohohlo, Governor of the Bank of Botswana
•General Olusegun Obasanjo, Former President of Nigeria and APP Member
