The third edition of Africa CEO forum started on Monday, 16th March 2015 in Geneva. A total of 800 decision-makers coming from 63 countries (among which 43 African countries) are taking part in this high-level meeting initiated by the Jeune Afrique Group, the African Development Bank and the Swiss company, Rainbow Unlimited.
One of the innovations brought to the third edition of the Africa Ceo Forum is the communication of the American economist Jeremy Rifkin during the first day. Three conferences daily with themes concerning real estate, transport or logistics are also scheduled.
According to the Jeune Afrique magazine site, businessmen as Issad Rebrab (Cevital), Jean Kacou Diagou (NSIA), Mo Ibrahim (founder of Celtel), Mohamed Bennani (Bank of Africa), Adewale Tinubu (Oando), Mohamed El Kettani (Attijariwafa Bank), Abdeslam Ahizoune (Morocco Telecom), Muhoho Kenyatta (Brookside Dairy), Salwa Akhannouch (Group Aksal) will attend this meeting.
As Africa Top Success reported it, the third edition of Africa Ceo Forum should be held in Africa (Ivory Coast). It was relocated because of the Ebola virus disease that raged in the western part of the continent.
Ivory Coast will nevertheless be represented at these works by a delegation led by Ivorian Prime Minister, Daniel Kablan Duncan. A whole panel will moreover be dedicated to the investment opportunities in the country, specified the site of the magazine.
