One response has been a search for an African identity, distinct from European influences. Afrocentricity, which has emerged as an alternative to Eurocentricity, may be a valid concept within the confines of the African continent and may, indeed, serve to redefine African culture and communication, but it is not a valid concept when it comes to communicating with the outside world. 21

However, as communication needs change, as the reflection of strengthening economies, some of these differences are likely to disappear.
