The goals of the Brenthurst Foundation are vital to the development of Africa. The active involvement of Latin American scholars and policy-makers in Brenthurst's work, and its affiliation with INCAE, our region's leading business school and think-tank, is a welcome bridge between our continents, which face similar challenges but rarely share knowledge and experience.

The Foundation shows what is possible, how challenges can be met if we work together.

The Chinese Academy for Social Sciences and the Brenthurst Foundation have enjoyed a most fruitful cooperation, especially around setting up the path-breaking Africa-China-US Trilateral Dialogue. [It] illustrated how, with a mindset of collaboration rather than competition, we can work together on developmental issues to mutual advantage.

The Konrad-Adenauer Stiftung has been actively involved with the Foundation since its inception. [It] not only plays a role as a generator of novel ideas, but is focused on finding the means to make a practical difference to the lives of its African constituents.

Deputy Secretary General
