Africa CEO Forum (ACF) 2024


Africa CEO Forum (ACF) 2024 - At the Table or On the Menu? A Critical Moment to Shape a New Future for Africa.

After a quarter-century of favorable macroeconomic conditions for Africa, marked by easy money, commodity booms and relative political stability, the landscape has shifted dramatically. Geopolitical fault lines have deepened in the past year, creating a multi-regional world, beset with climate, AI and sovereignty challenges, in which global forces are competing viciously over capital, critical resources and the industries of the future.

As we enter a new and uncertain era, Africa stands at a pivotal juncture which will determine its future.

Africa’s ability to secure “a place at the table” and command respect in global dialogues faces threats from widespread governance crises and a noticeable disregard for continental leadership, as evidenced by Africa’s modest outcomes from COP28.

Moreover, we are entering an era shaped by climate and AI disruptions, where complacency risks landing us “on the menu” in the global economic contest. The time to chart the course to a new future for Africa is now. A future in which the African private sector will be empowered to capitalize on the continent’s diverse comparative advantages; from consumer markets buoyed by strong demographic growth to leveraging its natural resources to become a pillar of the global energy transition, or even to feeding the growing appetite for African entertainment, whether in movies, music or sports.

On 16th and 17th May in Kigali, Rwanda, for its 11th annual summit, the Africa CEO Forum 2024 will call on its community of 2,000 business leaders, CEOs, investors, heads of state and ministers to seize this critical moment to shape this new future and to set in motion key transformative agendas. Over 2 days and more than 60 panel discussions, public-private workshops and closed-door roundtables, we will explore a new future for Africa, addressing critical topics such as:
