‘Export or die’ was a popular mantra used by Kenneth Kaunda, Zambia’s first president from 1964 to 1991, to encourage domestic manufacturing of goods for export. This mantra is still relevant in many African countries, especially this year, which is shaping up to be Africa’s year of trade. The specialized trade in raw materials is decreasing Africa’s competitiveness, making diversification necessary.
