Business Leaders Series: West Africa

Africa Regional Webinar Series

African economies are expected to rebound in 2021. According to the African Development Bank, real GDP on the continent is projected to grow by 3.4% after shrinking by 2.1% last year, a recovery driven by the effective deployment of therapeutics and vaccines, continued implementation of the Africa Continental Free Trade Agreement (AfCFTA) and increased private sector investment and participation in the economy.

The first regional event invited leading private sector players and investors operating in West Africa to discuss the latest industry developments in technology infrastructure, renewable energy and trade & logistics on 19 May 2021.

West Africa is expected to bounce back from the crisis with renewed confidence. This has been demonstrated by major investments in the technology ecosystem, new developments in the renewable energy space as well as a strong focus on trade and logistics projects to harness the potential of the AfCFTA.

The West Africa regional event unpacked these economic and investment trends and provided a unique platform for businesses and investors alike. The virtual event sessions are now available on-demand by using the links below:
