Global Conference 2015

Sub-Saharan Africa has emerged as one of the world's fastest-growing regions. Over the past 15 years, market capitalization for businesses in the region has tripled, spurred by diversification into sectors such as financial services, telecommunications, real estate and retail. Which African geographies and industries are most promising today? What policies and infrastructure projects are needed to unlock Africa's potential? And what is required of local businesses, government and the international businesses community? This session brings together notable business leaders representing a cross-section of the continent's geographies and industries to discuss their priorities, challenges, outlooks and approaches to doing business in Africa.
