The event discusses local investment opportunities for local and international Businesses in Rwanda on Sep 16, 2021 05:00 PM Kigali. It is hosted by the European Business Chamber of Rwanda in collaboration with RSSB and Delegation of the European Union to Rwanda.

Join Invest Africa’s flagship event, taking place virtually across 3 days from 14 -16 September 2021.
The Covid-19 pandemic has impacted everyone and led to the international community, as a whole, having to manage the challenges that have been created.

The fallout, however, hasn’t been felt evenly and has led to Kristalina Georgieva of the IMF to call on the international community to give emerging economies a “fair shot” at recovery and future prosperity.

The Africa Debate is focused on providing a platform for discussion and action on how to best support Africa’s transformative recovery.

The Webinar takes place on WEDNESDAY, 15 SEPTEMBER 2021 from 10 - 10.45 am.

The EU has launched the largest Research and Innovation program in the world, Horizon Europe with a budget of €95.5 billion over seven years.

Entreprise en Afrique : un nouveau pacte pour la relance

Exceptionnellement cette année, le Forum Afrique du CIAN, en partenariat avec le journal l’Opinion, est découplé en deux séquences afin de garantir un événement de haut niveau et un format sécurisé. Une première étape a déjà eu lieu le jeudi 18 mars 2021 durant laquelle les résultats des deux baromètres du CIAN sur le climat des affaires et les leaders d’opinion africains ont été dévoilés en présence d’intervenants de haut niveau.

Le programme Santé Entreprise Afrique (SEA) aborde une nouvelle étape de son développement dans un contexte sanitaire dominé en Afrique par la pandémie de COVID, la circulation des variants, les enjeux liés à la vaccination, ainsi que la recherche par les acteurs économiques de réponses et de partenariats efficaces pour relancer la lutte contre les autres grandes endémies.

Prévu initialement le 18 mars, le rendez-vous annuel des dirigeants, cadres d’entreprises présents ou souhaitant investir en Afrique, aura lieu en deux temps en raison de la crise sanitaire. Une web conférence est programmée le 18 mars 2021 tandis que le forum en format présentiel aura lieu le 1er juillet 2021.

Confrontée à un choc d’une ampleur inédite, l’Afrique a fait preuve d’une résilience insoupçonnée. La crise offre l’occasion de repenser la place des entreprises dans l’organisation économique du continent et d’inventer de nouvelles chaînes de valeur. Ces thèmes seront au cœur des débats du Forum Afrique du CIAN.
