Key messages of this report
Africa has a window of opportunity to enlarge the economic benefits from its booming oil, gas and minerals industries.
The lack of specialized expertise is a major bottleneck obstructing the potential for more well-paid jobs and home-grown supplier
companies.
Significant skills shortages exist both in terms of numbers and quality, particularly within the science, technology, engineering
and mathematics (STEM fields).
Establishing Public Private Partnerships and regional centers of excellence is key to building these specializations.
The World Bank is supporting 10 African countries as they train workers for the extractive industries.
