The Economic Development Board of Mauritius will be leading a delegation of private sector stakeholders to the Africa CEO Forum 2023, scheduled on the 5 and 6 of June 2023, in Abidjan Côte d’Ivoire. This landmark annual event hosted under the theme: From 300 to 3000 – How to deliver the next generation of Africa Champions, will convene CEO’s, heads of state and policy makers to discuss challenges facing the world amidst multiple crises and offers invaluable networking opportunity with top decision makers.
Over the past decade, the AFRICA CEO FORUM has promoted the idea that the private sector is the engine of African growth. This outlook has been embraced by policy makers and has resulted in an increase in foreign direct investment. The massive flows into various sectors such as logistics, infrastructure, digital economy, agribusiness, financial services, and real estate has led to the emergence of over 300 African companies with billion-dollar turnovers and has unveiled the depth of the underlying opportunities in Africa.
Alongside the Africa CEO Forum the Economic Development Board Mauritius will host a Business Forum and Networking Event in collaboration with the ‘’Chambre de Commerce et d’Industrie de Côte d’Ivoire’’ (CCI-CI), the ‘’Confédération Générale des Entreprises de Côte d’Ivoire’’ (CGECI) and the ‘’Centre de Promotion des Investissements de Côte d’Ivoire’’ (CEPICI) on Wednesday 7 June 2023 at the Head Office of the CCI-CI. This event will bring together private sector operators from Mauritius attending the ACF 2023 and companies from the Western African country to discuss avenues of collaboration and strategic alliances. The EDB Mauritius and the CEPICI will sign an updated Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to further broaden cooperation between the two Investment Promotion Agencies.
