Chairman of the Nairobi Securities Exchange Mr. Eddy Njoroge has outlined the importance of African securities being at the forefront in getting solutions to African problems.Speaking when he announced that the 18th edition of the African Securities Exchange Association (ASEA) conference and AGM will be held from the 23rd to the 25th November 2014 in Kenya, the NSE chairman reiterated the need for African Securities exchanges to be central to the continent’s socio-economic endeavours.

    “This conference is very important as it will highlight relevant issues relating to African financial markets and global financial trends. It is an important opportunity for key decision makers to come together, debate and suggest solutions for the issues that characterize the African Stock Markets,” he said.

    This year’s conference which is titled “Africa on the Rise: Strengthening the Capital Markets Ecosystem to fuel Economic Growth” will see over 350 participants drawn from all over Africa attend the November forum.

    The conference will serve as a forum for dialogue and sharing of ideas on Africa’s quest for a more vibrant capital market.

    On his part, NSE’s Chief Executive, Mr. Peter Mwangi encouraged corporates to participate in the conference as it will be a brilliant networking activity.

    “We believe the Conference is a perfect opportunity for players in the industry to reach out to capital markets stakeholders, key policy and decision makers on a regional and international level with the aim of discussing ways to enrich our African economy,” he said.

    The African Securities Exchanges Association (ASEA) is the premier Association of 23 securities exchanges in Africa. ASEA aims at developing member exchanges, enhancing the global competitiveness of Member Exchanges and providing a networking platform.

    Established in 1993, ASEA works with African Member Exchanges to unlock potential of African Capital Markets by enhancing the visibility of ASEA.
