When will developing countries stop importing knowledge? (26)

9 October, 2018

Dear Obi,

Thank you for the point raised on "knowledge transfer" and the idea of presenting the problem in that perspective.

This concept of "Knowledge transfer" has always beaten my imagination. I may claim to have read enough/comprehensively about it but as of now i find it empty. I will be grateful if you could share substantive information on the concept which to the best of my knowledge is or has disappeared from the limelight( A least in the African countries perspectives). It has always appeared to me as one could also think of

"Brain transplant" for African! no, i don't believe it ! Knowledge is present everywhere without discrimination. It is about mastering your environment with the skills and knowledge inherited overtime as a legacy from previous generations.

Best.
