African billionaires and presidents gather in Abidjan for The Africa CEO Forum




African billionaires and hundreds of business and government leaders from across the continent will gather in Abidjan, Ivory Coast’s economic capital, from Mon., June 5, until Tuesday for this year’s edition of The Africa CEO Forum.

The Africa CEO Forum will bring together the players who are forging a sovereign and competitive Africa capable of transforming crises into opportunities, where they will explore themes around the conduct of an energy transition adapted to the continent, the local impact of mining or agribusiness, the development of African voices on significant global problems, and adaptation of businesses to the global inflationary crisis. 

All major industries will be covered, with particular emphasis on women executives, family enterprises, and startups. It is anticipated that 50 innovative companies that have collectively raised more than $1 billion will attend the event.

Among the personalities confirmed for this year’s event are billionaires Abdul Samad Rabiu, chairman of BUA Group and Aziz Akhannouch, the prime minister of Morocco; Malagasy tycoon Hassanein Hiridjee, CEO of Axian Group, as well as the presidents of Cote d’Ivoire and Senegal, among other personalities. 

The Africa CEO Forum, founded in 2012 by Jeune Afrique Media Group, is the reference platform for the leaders of the largest African and international companies, international investors, heads of multinationals, heads of state, ministers, and representatives of the leading financial institutions active on the continent.
