Hence, Africa has rightly earned the title of the “Continent of the Future.” Realizing Africa’s immense potential, the government of Pakistan has been focusing on establishing a sustainable partnership with the African continent through economic diplomacy under its “Engage Africa ” policy. She went on to say that one of the fundamental objectives of establishing CAMEA at the ISSI was to focus on identifying areas of mutual interest between Pakistan and Africa in keeping with Pakistan’s Engage Africa policy.
