COMESA Regional Investment Agency and Egyptian Ministry of Investment and International Cooperation are organising the annual Africa Forum, Africa 2017 in Sharm El-Sheikh between December 7 – 9.
The forum will focus on ‘Driving Investment for Inclusive Growth’, aiming to promote African trade and investment, enhance private sector cooperation in Africa, and catalyse investment into sectors of strategic interest to the continent.
More than 1,000 leaders in business and politics from across Africa and the world are expected to be present in this year’s forum.
The three-day forum is driven by three major priorities; investment for sustainable development, job creation for the youth bulge which is government’s biggest challenge across Africa nowadays, and finally the inclusive growth. This year, the programme has been enhanced with a Young Entrepreneurs Day, which will be a key to harnessing the opportunity of Africa’s young talent.
