An organized and enterprising African private sector has emerged over the past two decades, despite a business climate that remains challenging. Applying innovative methods and original strategies, it has shown its dynamism in the best of times, and its resilience in the worst. But the number and size of major African companies remains small when measured against other emerging regions. The time has come for today’s African champions to hoist themselves up to the level of global competitiveness, powering the way for the next generation!
Entrepreneurs, managers, but also policy-makers, must rise to this challenge in a world marked by unprecedented technological disruption. Artificial intelligence, big data, robotization and other digital forces are already shaking up entire branches of the economy, and will inevitably impact the business of large African companies, as well as prospects for growth and job-creation. With the economic recovery in Africa starting to take shape, the sixth edition of the ACF will actively confront the future by inviting its 1,200 participants from the worlds of business, investment and politics in more than 60 countries to create a road map for the African private sector over the next decade. How should the continent tackle industrialization in the digital age? How can we accelerate the rise of women and young people into decision-making roles? What new opportunities are offered by the health and education sectors? Why must African businesses undergo a deep transformation in terms of governance? What are the lessons in leadership from Africa’s top CEOs? Over two days, more than 100 speakers will debate 40 themes to address this challenge: make the next 10 years of growth a decade of entrepreneurial transformation!
