Invest Africa Debate 2023

About Africa Debate

Absa Corporate and Investment Bank takes pride in once again sponsoring the Africa Debate, an annual event organised by Invest Africa, that brings together key figures such as thought leaders, policymakers, investors, and other stakeholders. Our goal is to offer our clients a chance to engage with industry experts across various markets to explore the critical issues and opportunities concerning investment in Africa.

The upcoming Africa Debate, which will be held at London's Guildhall on May 11, aims to foster constructive dialogue and cooperation among stakeholders to unlock Africa's economic potential and create sustainable value for all. This year, the Africa Debate will focus on several topics, including the investment landscape, regulatory frameworks, investment opportunities and risks, infrastructure, sustainability, and innovation. This event provides a valuable platform for participants to share their insights, exchange ideas, and build networks that can drive investment and growth in Africa. By leveraging our expertise, we aim to create opportunities that will help our clients make informed business decisions at the 2023 Invest Africa Debate.
