About the event
Our distinguished guest speaker Mr. George Ampratwum will introduce brain drain in Africa and the diaspora's perspectives. Given that globalization and technological advancement are making it easier for people to move across borders and still contribute to their home countries, we will attempt to redefine brain drain within this context. Moreover, brain drain is a global issue; therefore, we will address the problem in the context of Japan and other countries. Other questions like who is benefiting and losing from brain drain will be discussed. After all the presentations, the floor will be open to the audience, sharing their views and opinions about brain drain.
