INVEST IN AFRICA SUMMIT 2021 & AFRICAN BUSINESS LEADERSHIP AWARD (ABLA)
SEPT 16 – 17, 2021
3PM – 5PM GMT (DAILY)
THEME: Africa 4.0: Redefining Growth, Sustainability & Innovation.
African Leadership Magazine is pleased to invite you to the 4th Invest in Africa Summit and African Business & Leadership Awards 2021.
Africa is home to some of the fastest growing economies in the world, and despite the much-hyped stereotypes of a continent forever plagued by disease, war and turmoil, it is rapidly becoming the most desirable investment destination in the world today. Though the African economy has been badly hit by the pandemic, one of the apparent pathways economic transformation and sustainability in Africa is for policymakers to intentionally grapple with the exciting opportunities of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) in Africa which has been upending the nature of work, globally.
By 2030, Africa’s potential workforce will be among the world’s largest, and with the needed infrastructure and skills for innovation and technology use, the 4IR will spur massive opportunity for growth. In recent years, the ICT sector in Africa has continued to grow, a trend that is likely to continue as available data shows that mobile technologies and services have generated 1.7 million formal and informal direct jobs, as well as contributed to $144 billion of economic value (8.5 percent of the GDP of sub-Saharan Africa), and $15.6 billion to the public sector through taxation.
In the same vein, the Industry 4.0 will narrow the traditional; engender digitization of the manufacturing sector, with tremendous opportunities for African manufacturers and small and medium enterprises to create new business models of the future and integrate into global value chains seamlessly.
The African Leadership Magazine is therefore putting together 5th edition of The Invest in Africa Summit-2021 to bring together Policymakers, private sector leaders, Industry Titans, and all stakeholders during this 2-day forum to contribute to shaping a new future for our continent. The summit will also offer a platform for Africa to showcase the key investment opportunities, and celebrate the African Business Leadership Awards (ABLA) 2021, a highlight of the summit.
