Africa Communications week is an annual global campaign open to all communication professionals. Supported by the World Communication Forum Association, the ACW is a weeklong series of events simultaneously taking place in several countries across Africa and the world.
This year’s edition is themed – Economic Integration in Africa: Opportunities for Communications. According to ACW co-founder, Eniola Harrison, narratives surrounding Africa, impact on the socio-economic development of the continent. Africa focused communicators must therefore be strategic about shaping a narrative that is so vital to the transformation of the continent.
