Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 16 giugno 2010

London, on 21 -22 June, is an internationally acclaimed gathering of global investors, government and business leaders. The Forum focuses on practical measures for increasing business and economic growth in Africa. This year’s keynote speaker will be HE Philemon Yang, Prime Minister of the Republic of Cameroon. The Prime Minster heads a strong delegation to the Forum, comprising Ministers and business leaders from Cameroon, who will hold extensive talks with international investors and business partners during the 2 day forum. The Forum will also be addressed by Ministers from Rwanda, Zambia, Namibia, Cameroon and newly appointed Hon. Stephen O’Brien MP, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State, DFID, UK. Business Leaders from the UK, South Africa, Rwanda, Kenya, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Israel, Canada, Uganda, Nigeria, Tanzania, Australia and the US will also address the Forum. A Key highlight of the Africa Business Forum is the 3rd Annual CBC African Business Awards, organised in collaboration with Africa Business Magazine. The Awards, held at Grosvenor House on the evening of 21st June, celebrate African business leadership and innovation by showcasing it to the world. The central theme of the 2010 Forum is Africa: Success Stories and New Partnerships. In 2010, over 15 African countries celebrate their 50th anniversaries of independence and the World Cup has brought the world to South Africa. At the same time, several of Africa’s most persistent challenges remain to be addressed, including the infrastructure deficit. Countries have been affected by the international financial crisis, but many have weathered the storm better than expected. New investment is being attracted by oil and gas finds, telecommunications, as well as revived interest in the untapped potential of agriculture development.  The Forum will address how business and government can best design a sustainable growth strategy for Africa in the new global economic environment. It will focus on the practical partnerships which business is taking on job creation, enterprise, trade, investment and good governance across the continent, and discuss how we can strengthen capital flows and trade. The results of the Forum will be communicated to the G8.  Forum Sponsors Include: African Capacity Building Foundation, Geovic Cameroon, African Medical Investments, Matrix, Eko Atlantic, the Nigerian Maritime Administration & Safety Agency  and MTN Cameroon.
