Cape Town - African leaders need to make a lot more noise about the leakage of money from the continent, Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan told the World Economic Forum on Africa in Cape Town on Friday.
Plugging the leaks was one of the key ways of keeping Africa's growth steady, he said during an discussion with other finance ministers.
“It will mean that we will have enough resources on this continent, and we have a lot of investable capital,” Gordhan said.
African countries were growing at good rates, but growth alone would not lead to prosperity.
“What Africa has an opportunity to do is not just keep the GDP numbers going between five and nine percent. It's about the quality of that GDP growth,” Gordhan said.
