This year, the FT Africa Summit will focus on business and investment. After a few difficult years, the economic and business environment is improving in much of the continent. The cyclical upturn has been helped by political developments, particularly in southern Africa. The continent’s two biggest economies, Nigeria and South Africa, are out of recession. Other economies have benefited from improving commodity prices. And still others never slowed down at all. Though the froth has come off the Africa Rising narrative, there is much that is positive, from thriving tech hubs, mega industrial projects, improving infrastructure and a new emphasis on trade and investment. Many Africa-based companies are preparing IPOs.


As well as its usual mixture of business, politics and economics, this year there will be a special emphasis on Asian investments in Africa, not only from China, but also from countries such as Turkey, India, Lebanon, the Gulf States, South Korea and more. We’ll be inviting high-profile speakers in the field of business, economics and politics, as well as heads of state from countries committed to making business central to their development goals. The programme will also feature a number of cultural and artistic speakers, both to shake up the debate and to reflect Africa’s growing global influence in art, architecture, music and film. The FT Africa Summit has gone from strength to strength over the past few years and this year promises to be the hardest-hitting and most rewarding yet.
