Dar es Salaam, Tanzania: Dalberg Group, The Africa List and the CEO Roundtable hosted an Iftar dinner to celebrate Dalberg’s 10 years in Africa by launching the book “17 Big Bets for a Better World”. The purpose of the launch was to kick off a discussion on Tanzania’s future and the role that the private sector plays in building the economy while addressing issues that affect Tanzanians.

The event was attended by more than 150 business leaders in Tanzania representing a diverse range of sectors including finance and banking, telecoms, agribusiness and manufacturing. Reflecting on the launch in the Tanzanian context, Dalberg Group’s Executive Director - James Mwangi - remarked, “The book presents 17 bold and innovative ideas to reduce global poverty and improve lives. 

It tackles the types of questions that Dalberg has been addressing in Tanzania and the rest of Africa for the past decade. The private sector is a major driving force in developing our economies and a key partner in the type of work we do – working on the most pressing development challenges.”

In the book, some of the world’s most renowned thought leaders detail how we collectively can reach the global goals (Sustainable Development Goals) set forth by the UN last year. From a bank president and a Nobel Peace Prize winner to an artist and Michelin-chef, contributors include Amina Mohammed – current Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations and a former Minister of Environment of Nigeria, Ashish J.
