Algeria, Mauritania, Chad and Guinea round out the top five countries unable to retain their top talents. Not every African country suffers significant brain drain. Rwanda, for example, holds onto their best and brightest, and at the same time attracts international talent. Rwanda tops WEF’s list of African countries able to retain their top talent, followed by some distance ahead of Morocco, Kenya. Ivory Coast and South Africa. Regarding international attraction, Rwanda again is number one ahead of Seychelles, Ivory Coast, The Gambia and Mauritius. What are the 10 most competitive economies in sub-Saharan Africa?
