Abstract:The dimensions of manpower needs of the African economy are little understood after independence. Advanced countries believing in the abundance of labour, devoted their energies to pouring millions of non-human capital to serve as the level for African development. Recent studies and experiences, however, have shown that investment in human resources is essentially the most important factor in a nation. The greatest contribution to the development of African countries by the advanced should, therefore, be to the formation and preservation of their human potential. This is illustrated in the following sections: The role of foreign assistance - The acute manpower situation: country studies - The use of foreign manpower - Developing the African counterpart. Notes.
