Investment in Africa is under the spotlight this week at our three-day Africa Investors' Conference, which Standard Bank Group is hosting with ICBC Standard Bank at their London office. Among the select guests invited are policymakers, international investors and African corporates from numerous African countries, such as South Africa, Kenya, Zambia, Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda, Nigeria, Botswana, Malawi, Mauritius, Egypt and Zimbabwe.
This is the sixth year that the conference is being held. It is designed to connect international investors to leading policymakers and some of Africa’s most successful companies, sharing plans and ideas with a view to finding key opportunities for growth on the continent.
The conference format consists of one-on-one and small group business meetings that allow attendees to network and discuss investment opportunities in Africa.
We invited 45 corporates from a broad range of sectors, including financial services, mining, construction, chemicals, hotels, leisure, telecoms, food and retail. Close on investors from over 100 companies are attending.
Last year’s event was attended by nearly 250 delegates and a close on 830 meetings took place.
