The Chief Executives of the largest companies in Africa will meet in Geneva, Switzerland to network and discuss growth strategies that will see their businesses expand and improve the continent’s economic growth through development of the private sector.
Organised by Groupe Jeune Afrique, publisher of Jeune Afrique and The Africa Report in partnership with Rainbow Unlimited, planners of economic promotion events based in Switzerland, and the African Development Bank, the forum promotes and develops Africa’s private sector and has established itself as the premier international event devoted to corporate growth strategies. It is set to hold on between 17th and 19th of march.
“More than 400 CEOs from across the African continent, 100 bankers and financiers, and 200 prominent African and international figures are expected to attend the AFRICA CEO FORUM 2014,” a statement by the organisers said.
Having recorded massive participation in its maiden edition last year, organisers will be hoping to build on the success of the 2012 forum to have another successful event.
“Specialists in banking, capital investment and financial markets and representatives of international financial institutions will be at the Africa CEO Forum 2014 to keep abreast of the trends and developments in the African business model,” the statement added.
Apart from networking, participants will enjoy themed workshops, private meetings and conferences.
The event, according to the organisers, will also include an awards ceremony; The AFRICA CEO FORUM AWARDS, where “companies and investors whose strategies are contributing to Africa’s economic ascendance will be recognised”.
