The seventh edition of the AFRICA CEO FORUM, the largest international gathering of CEOs and investors from the African private sector, will be held on 25th and 26th March 2019, in Kigali, Rwanda.
With Africa swinging into action to strengthen regional integration, the choice of Rwanda, a country at the intersection of East and Central Africa, matches the AFRICA CEO FORUM’s desire to facilitate meetings and encourage business flow between CEOs from across the continent.
The 2018 edition was well attended, including the presidents of Côte d’Ivoire, Ghana and Zimbabwe and the continent’s major decision-makers.
The gateway to a regional market of more than 150 million people and a signatory of 68 trade agreements, Rwanda has many assets to host the next AFRICA CEO FORUM.
“This 7th edition will therefore be held at the heart of the continent, in Rwanda, a country both francophone and anglophone, whose economic dynamism and development model anchored in education, innovation and performance perfectly reflect the values of the AFRICA CEO FORUM,” explains Amir Ben Yahmed, founder and president of the AFRICA CEO FORUM.
