About

Africa has always presented opportunities for U.S. and other global businesses as an emerging market for its exports. In 2012, eight of the twenty fastest growing economies in the world were in sub-Saharan Africa according to the IMF. With Africa positioning itself as a preferred destination for global business and investments, the forum shall discuss the investment opportunities in Africa, the benefits and challenges of doing business within its environs, what measures have been put in place to attract foreign direct investments into the continent, the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA), how it has impacted Africa and the dynamics of US-Africa trade relations under the Trump administration. Doing Business in Africa Investments Forum will gather the most influential African policy makers, top investors, corporate executives, startup founders and sector leaders who has continued to define the economic landscape on the continent, while examining the current state of Africa’s disposition to foreign investors and its economic future from a global standpoint, the biggest deals, and the latest policies as regards foreign direct Investment (FDI).
