Every crisis creates an opportunity. Even though the pandemic put the brakes on social and economic progress in Africa, as the continent rebuilds, it has a chance to pursue a growth path that is responsible, inclusive and sustainable.
The region has enormous economic potential: a youthful population, burgeoning tech sector, rich natural resources and fast growing markets offer rewarding opportunities for investors and global businesses. However, challenges remain. Millions of people have been pushed into poverty. The impact of climate change worsens each year. Political instability in some countries is rising. This needs urgent attention. The world must come together to discuss Africa’s recovery and how to finance its needs.
At Bloomberg Invest: Focus on Africa, we discuss actionable solutions for Africa to reimagine its future. What will it take for investors to deploy their capital in the continent? We will convene corporate leaders, policy makers, innovators and thinkers to explore key issues around investing so that the Africa that emerges from the pandemic is stronger than the one that went into it.
Join us. At Bloomberg Invest: Focus on Africa.
