The Africa Roundtable: April 2023

Roadmap to Africa: A Turning Point in Economic Relations

The next The Africa Roundtable is presented by GPI in cooperation with the Mo Ibrahim Foundation in Nairobi, the economic and technological hub of East Africa.

As the side event to the annual Ibrahim Governance Weekend (IGW), the upcoming Roundtable will address the perspectives deriving from the geopolitical shifts we encounter around the world. The need to decouple and diversify sheds a different light on Africa and marks a turning point in Europe-Africa economic relations. Under the credo “Roadmap to Africa”, we aim to identify the opportunities to deepen trade and investment relations as well as leveraging private and institutional funding. Crises offer a license to act and to speed up developments leading to concrete plans for implementation.

The Africa Roundtable is an exclusive circle which enables high-level participants from different sectors to engage in frank and open conversation. We encourage an intensive exchange and aim for mutual understanding, leading to reliable action recommendations. Networking opportunities during the IGW, to which all Roundtable participants are accredited, and the production of White Papers complement the Roundtable.

The format is supported by several partners: the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Mo Ibrahim Foundation, and the Federation of German Industries. Our research partner McKinsey will provide the basis for fruitful discussions.
