Accra is set to host the annual Africa Advancement Forum Global summit, a forum dedicated to enhancing and promoting conversations on public private Partnerships devoted to Improving Africa’s Economic Prosperity.
The Forum runs as an Africa focused platform that creates space for the discussion of key prospects and strategies that aims at influencing positive growth, perception, and advancement of the continent.
This year, we have carefully chosen a theme that resonates with the unique realities of the burden of governance facing Africa due to the impact of COVID 19 and other attendant Security related challenges with the theme; “THE AFRICA WE WANT”.
The theme will be discussed by a group of speakers and panelists with cognate experience from various sectors across the continent. This Year’s summit like others will attract select State actors, diplomates, development consultants and top business leaders from across the African Continent
The thematic areas are designed to elicit dialogue around the impact of COVID 19 on the African economy and the possible quick wins the government of Africa can adopt for recovery.
The AFCFTA; its attendance challenges and prospects, home grown ICT innovation and productivity; drivers of sustainable economic and social transformation in Africa, changing global perception on Africa; the role of African centric content developers, the media, civil society groups, & social entrepreneurs, finally troubleshooting terrorism and Rethinking approaches to peace building and peace keeping in Africa, these will form the major conversations at the forum.
