The Ambassadors’ Dinner, like every year, will host the Doing Business in Africa (DBA) Award ceremony during which you will have the opportunity to decide who will be the recipient of the DBA 2022 Award.

The AfCFTA connects 1.3 billion people across 55 countries with a combined gross domestic product valued at $3.4 trillion – representing a connected Africa. Africa needs long-term thinking and greater cooperation – and this is precisely what the AfCTFA represents. Across the world, countries are questioning trade agreements and economic integration. While the world turns in one direction, the African Union is moving in the other by deepening ties across the continent. At the same time, we cannot lose sight of significant challenges of AfCFTA including implementation, equity and infrastructure. Beyond trade, the pact also addresses the movement of people and labour, trade in services, investment, intellectual property rights and competition policy. When African countries trade with themselves they exchange more manufactured and processed goods, have more knowledge transfer, and create more value. Where does local manufacturing fit into the AfCFTA agreement?

Ces derniers mois, à la suite d’une période de crises successives ayant touché le continent africain plus ou moins directement, et plus ou moins durement, le recrutement de cadres a connu une période particulièrement faste. Ce dynamisme de recrutement est cependant nuancé selon les secteurs, et il est loin d’être à l’abri de futurs aléas.
