Post-COVID 2020: The Template for Success
For over a decade much discussion has centred on Africa’s potential, sometimes at risk of eclipsing the phenomenal successes already achieved. Of late these include companies and communities who have weathered the last six months with resilience against the odds.
This year’s premier sponsors, Vancouver-based Lucara Diamond and Lucara Botswana, are a case in point: thriving in an African market that for many is without doubt the world’s best modern economic success story: scoring the highest growth rates globally for a number of consecutive years since its independence - supported by authentic and strong local institutions and an open trade outlook.
From October 27-29, 2020 join us online for three exciting days under the theme The Template for Success as we look to the next decade - and the crucial role of African markets in the emerging global economic landscape. Canada's people and its companies have received a red carpet welcome in Africa. It is indeed a privilege for our members and friends to accept the invitations for new and ongoing partnerships at this historic juncture.
We will welcomed key sponsors, partners and speakers to our in-person component, observing the applicable protocols.
Heading for over 1.5 billion people, Africa will serve as the driving force of the world’s dynamism, with its young population in an aging world. The economic shift from West to East is today’s news; an imminent move South is the premise for investors and businesses building African templates for worldwide success.
