Turning the corner in 2017
How can dependable and fragile economies diversify faster to counter-balance the oil crisis
A special focus on the region and in particular, Lusophone Africa that offers business opportunities linked to their natural resources and demand for commodities. But which countries are moving faster? Who are the winners and the losers from the foreign investors' eyes?
Now in its seventh successful year, Agenda Africa is an invitation-only networking event for businesses, investors and advisers active in Sub-Saharan and Lusophone Africa.
The event is informal and dynamic, and participants debate the current hot topics in an interactive style. A series of specialist panels allows the group to exchange experiences with leading experts.
The forum brings together a specially invited audience of senior representatives from corporate, financial institutions and investors – as well as business and legal advisers – to share their thoughts and experiences on doing business in the sub-Saharan region and, in particular, Angola and Mozambique.
This will be a highly participatory event and includes Q&A sessions.
Participants will discuss the current opportunities and potential difficulties related to investing in the region in the following sessions:
1. Overview for the Sub-Saharan region. What are the expectations for the region? The importance of independent regulation, planning and financial sustainability.
2. Energy, renewables and natural resources. What have been the challenges in oil & gas considering commodity prices. How has the market diversified? What are the lessons learnt?
3. Projects & Infrastructure. Attracting investment and models for financing in markets with low commodity prices. A very thin line between business opportunities and legal risk.
