The African Gold Rush
Over the past decade, African economies have been among the fastest growing in the world, and this trend is expected to accelerate over the next decade or two. This proverbial “Gold Rush in Africa,” has led to increasing business Foreign Direct Investments, increased business optimism, and substantial purchasing power coming from a burgeoning middle class. But this evolving story has yet to significantly improve the lives of over half the people on the continent and has been a driving force behind the increasing socio-economic inequality in many nations.
The disconnect between high growth rates and low human development still poses a challenge to Africa’s development. This year’s conference aims to present a balanced picture of what is going on in Africa. In addition to highlighting promising transformation across Africa, we will also discuss the challenges that lay ahead of Africa’s path to realizing its full economic potential as the world’s final investment frontier.
We are pleased to provide a platform for Africa’s top business thinkers, entrepreneurs, and innovators to dialogue and share insights on successfully maneuvering through these challenges, and identify best practices and opportunities for sustainable and inclusive growth in Africa. we look forward to seeing you in New York and engaging in a great dialogue and networking.
