Organised By : AIM Congress
Event Type : Virtual Events
The Annual Investment Meeting is honoured to launch AIM Africa, its 2nd Regional Chapter under the theme "AFRICA Unlocked: Innovation & Sustainability as the Drivers of Economic Growth", which will be hosted on June 29 & 30 June, 2021 via Events10x Virtual Platform.
AIM Africa will witness a prestigious gathering of top government officials and reputable speakers from different countries and international organisations, as well as major investment stakeholders for the African region to explore rewarding investment opportunities that will benefit a multitude of sectors and enhance economic cooperation and support among nations.
AIM Africa will cover vital issues that will propel the region’s positive transformation towards its growth and productivity such as the opportunities of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA), the world’s largest free trade area, which aims to connect 55 African countries to form a single continent-wide market for goods and services, stimulating more trade and investment. The agreement is expected to expand intra-African trade, boost industrialization, increase job opportunities, and enhance the global competitiveness of African industries.
This edition will also focus on Africa’s digital economy which is becoming one of the primary drivers of the region’s development. Digitalization is deemed as one of the most potent instruments for the effective implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and Africa’s Agenda 2063 and is expected to open up fresh income generation opportunities for millions of people affected by poverty in the region.
Africa is one of the world's fastest growing economies and many international business experts have also regarded this region as the future economic growth engine of the world. With this vast potential, AIM Africa will be a powerful impetus in strengthening the region’s economic stability, sustainability and growth.
