17 Million people left Africa for greener pastures in 2017 - UN

A new report by the UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) has said that no fewer than 17 million Africans left the continent in 2017 in search of greener pastures.
The 'Economic Development in Africa' report also said 5.5 million people moved to Africa from other continents while some 19 million international migrants moved within Africa.

It said the large-scale migration of people within Africa tended to boost growth and lifted the continent's whole economy, urging the world to dispel misconceptions and harmful narratives targeting migration.
