Africa CEO Forum 2019

We are pleased to announce that we will be co-sponsoring the seventh edition of the AFRICA CEO FORUM, taking place on March 25-26th in Kigali, Rwanda.

The forum is the leading international conference dedicated to the private sector in Africa and hosts the continent’s top CEOs, international investors, experts and high-level policy makers every year.

Richard Arlove - Regional CEO AMEA, Nousrath Bhugeloo - Regional Head AMEA, Business Development and Emilie Barbier - Senior Administrator, Business Development, will be representing Ocorian AMEA and will be joining a delegation led by the Economic Development Board of Mauritius. The team will be available to discuss opportunities throughout the day at Booth 21.

On Tuesday 26th March, Richard Arlove will be participating in a panel discussing: “Mauritius: Africa’s Business and Financial Hub”. Moderated by Kevin Njiraini - Regional Lead, Sub-Saharan Africa, International Finance Corporation, the panel discussion will take place under the umbrella of the ‘Invest in Mauritius’ Session.   

Since 2012, each year the Africa CEO Forum has gathered more than 1,500 African and international influencers to explore and establish the business agenda of the continent.

Just a year ago, Kigali played host to the historic signing of the agreement endorsing the creation of the Continental Free Trade Area. This year’s edition of the Forum is themed Shaping the Future of Africa. The focus will be on regional integration and how it can be leveraged to drive private sector growth. Special attention will be given to intra-Africa trade and investment, cross-border infrastructure and the emergence of a pan-African financial services industry, amongst others.  

Talking ahead of his participation, Richard Arlove said:

We are happy to be present again this year, at what has become the most prominent Africa-focussed business gathering taking place on the continent. For years now, we have been specialising on structuring and administering cross-border trade and investment, and increasingly with a focus on Africa. Given that this year’s Forum will be looking closely at cross-border business in Africa, this is an opportune time for us to share our insights on the evolving role of Mauritius as a platform to do business with Africa. It will also reaffirm our mission to enhance our clients’ enterprise and shareholder value.”
