Home to seven of the world’s fastest growing economies, over 40% of the world’s arable land, a growing population with increased disposable income, rapid urbanisation and opportunities in technology and telecommunications providing more access to the continent – Africa is undoubtedly a serious market to watch on the global business scene.
The event will bring together the most influential business people involved in the growth of the African economy and will provide a multitude of highly valuable opportunities to network with peers and create new business contacts. Opportunities will include conference sessions, trade exhibition and networking events.
Africa’s unprecedented confidence in its own capabilities must be effectively promoted both within and outside the continent, reflecting the current phase of political stability, booming economies and a favorable investment climate.
