African growth story

The emerging growth story of Africa, home to 1.1 billion people, is at a turning point. The continent is on the verge of a new chapter, which will be informed by infrastructure development and particularly, its impact on 54 diverse, developing economies. Operating within this context, the African Economic Expansion Summit is well positioned to be a sustainable investment incubator.

The event is a premier international investment, business linkages and deal flow forum, as it presents the business case behind investment-ready African capital projects valued over R 1 billion (US $100 million).
