Join Invest Africa’s flagship event, taking place virtually across 3 days

The Covid-19 pandemic has impacted everyone and led to the international community, as a whole, having to manage the challenges that have been created.

The fallout, however, hasn’t been felt evenly and has led to Kristalina Georgieva of the IMF to call on the international community to give emerging economies a “fair shot” at recovery and future prosperity.
The Africa Debate is focused on providing a platform for discussion and action on how to best support Africa’s transformative recovery.

Taking place over three days as a fully virtual event, it will bring 1,000+ thought leaders, industry experts and entrepreneurs together to discuss how to best support Africa’s transformative recovery as part of the ‘Great Reset’. The decisions made in the next months will inform Africa’s place in the global economy for years to comeMake sure you take the opportunity to have your say.

What will be discussed?

The main themes addressed this year will include:

Join our country partner, Ghana, for a half-day investment roadshow highlighting opportunities in-country and support for international investors. This will be an opportunity for those investing, or new investors; to gain insight and network with policy-makers and decision-makers in Ghana.

The Africa Debate 2021 will ask how Africa can benefit from the so called ‘Great Reset’ and debate the key building blocks to set the Continent on a path to ambitious and sustainable recovery. Learn from market leaders and stakeholders from across Africa.

Setting big ambitions also means supporting the MSMEs who form the backbone of Africa’s economies. In a series of workshops and discussions, the Next Generation Africa Financing Forum will bring together PE Firms, DFIs, MSMEs and corporates to explore innovative financial solutions.
