The AFRICA CEO FORUM will hold its annual summit on June 13 and 14 in Abidjan. On that occasion, the largest platform gathering the African private sector will feature five presidents – Nana Akufo-Addo, Alassane Ouattara, Macky Sall, Mohamed Ould Ghazouani, Mohamed Bazoum – as well as Nigerian Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.
While the Covid-19 pandemic and the Ukrainian crisis disrupt historical balances and question everyone, the AFRICA CEO FORUM 2022 will be held under the sign of economic sovereignty. The multiple challenges underline the fragility of world economies and remind us of the need to develop autonomous and resilient economies in order to adapt to an increasingly uncertain international context.
On June 13 and 14, the Heads of State present in Abidjan will discuss these themes and interact with private sector leaders. During the Presidential Panel that will close the event, they will be interviewed by a renowned journalist on security issues, the crisis in the Sahel as well as the surge in food prices and its impact on populations and economies.
The delegation that will accompany Nana Akufo-Addo will also be able to present investment opportunities in the West African country to the 1500 participants of the event during a special session.
The presence of the Presidents of Ghana, Côte d’Ivoire, Senegal, Niger, Mauritania, and the Vice President of the first economic power of the continent as well as several Heads of Government confirm the vocation of the AFRICA CEO FORUM: to be a platform for public-private dialogue able to provide concrete solutions to the challenges facing the continent, at the time of the advent of a fully sovereign and innovating Africa.
