We would be delighted if you could join us on Wednesday, 1 March 2023, for our annual Doing Business in Africa panel discussion.

This year's panel will be considering the current geopolitical landscape (including war in Ukraine, increasing barriers to cross-border trade, cost of living crisis, rising energy costs and inflation) and assessing the impact it is having for business and investment opportunities in Africa. 

Hosted in co-operation with InvestAfrica, the event will provide a platform for discussion amongst senior participants from DFIs, multinationals and businesses from a variety of sectors on issues of interest to Africa and investment in Africa.
