FT Africa Summit 2018
October 7, 2018 - October 8, 2018
This year, the FT Africa Summit will focus on business and investment. After a few difficult years, the economic and business environment is improving in much of the continent. The cyclical upturn has been helped by political developments, particularly in southern Africa. The continent’s two biggest economies, Nigeria and South Africa, are out of recession. Other economies have benefited from improving commodity prices. And still others never slowed down at all. Though the froth has come off the Africa Rising narrative, there is much that is positive, from thriving tech hubs, mega industrial projects, improving infrastructure and a new emphasis on trade and investment. Many Africa-based companies are preparing IPOs.
