It promises to be the biggest and most important gathering taking place in Africa this year. With Egypt and President Al Sisi, taking over the chair of the African Union in 2019 it will be a Forum that will help shape Africa’s agenda in 2019. It will also precede the Intra-African trade fair that will take place in Cairo between the 11-17 December, allowing participants to join both events.

This year’s Forum will focus on developing intra-African investments and the effort to create the world’s largest trading bloc of 1.2 bn people.

The programme features world-renown keynote speakers, interactive panel discussions, expert presentations, and B2B engagement opportunities. 

The Forum will include a by-invitation CEO roundtable where captains of industry will be able to bring up to the African leadership key constraints to greater investment and jointly develop solutions to foster greater private sector growth:

The economic role of young people and women in unlocking the economic potential of Africa will be highlighted in one full day of the forum.
