Africa CEO Forum: Cameroon Joins Economic and Political Actors to Shape Business Landscape

Over 1,800 business leaders, investors and policy makers from Africa and around the world are holding discussions and high-level meetings dedicated to highlighting the role of the private sector in the development of the continent. 

This is in a two day conference in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire where the annual event of the “Africa CEO Forum” is scheduled to take place from June 5 to 6 June 2023. 

Cameroon’s Prime Minister, Chief Dr. Joseph Dion Ngute is representing President Paul Biya at the forum. 

He is leading a delegation of over twenty business men to Abidjan Côte d’Ivoire. 

The forum is the largest international meeting of the African private sector. 

In two days, the experts will discuss high-level networking with the continent’s leading decision makers, seize new business opportunities in an environment conducive to transactions and 

benefit  from the analysis of consultants from leading consultancy firms to guide or reinforce your strategy.

Accelerating Africa’s Digital Revolution

Amongst the many issues to be addressed at the Africa CEO forum is the continent’s footprint in digital evolution. 

According to suppliers, Post-Covid has seen a sharp increase in the need for supply chain resilience . While Africa is mainly a blind spot for visible supply chains, huge opportunities are emerging for the continent to gain a competitive edge as an alternative sourcing destination through digitalisation. 

Experts will school the attending CEOs and businesses on how Africa can harness its digital potential across industries and supply chains. 

Another scope of interest in the Abidjan forum will be ensuring Africa’s trillion-dollar carbon market benefits Africans. 

The President and CEO of the Africa Finance Cooperation, Samaila Zubairu says Africa currently produces only a small percentage of its carbon credit potential. 

For developing countries, the sale of sovereign carbon credits could represent a radical paradigm shift with a projected increase in GDP of 30 to 50% in the countries of the three basins. 

This breakfast panel where Samaila Zubairu speaker will identify and explore in detail the opportunities that the evolving carbon markets present for African countries to arrest the world’s fast pace of deforestation, while unlocking economic value from abundant natural resources, accelerating industrialization and diversification, and fostering sustainable development.
