What’s next for Africa: How will investment and trade transform the continent into the next great economic success story?

​​​​​Why now? Africa is on the cusp of transformative change as policy leaders, NGOs, private businesses and investors define a roadmap to promote universal connectivity and intracontinental trade – and drive inclusive growth and public-sector reform. Urgent questions? What policy initiatives are needed to secure continent-wide trade agreements and digital transformation? What role will corporate actors play in driving anti-corruption efforts and promoting sustainable growth? How can public-private partnerships and multilateral cooperation be leveraged to achieve broad-based economic success? Key takeaways? The challenges and opportunities of the next wave of investments in Africa.
