In 2019, seven of the world’s 15 fastest-growing economies by real GDP were African. Africa had a nominal GDP of $2,542 billion in 2019. The IMF predicts that sub-Saharan Africa’s GDP will grow by 3.7% in 2021 and 3.8% in 2022. Trading under the African Continental Free Trade Area started in January 2021 and has created a huge single market containing over 1.3 billion people.
Africa has vast natural resources and a young and rapidly growing population. Intra-African trade currently accounts for only about 16% of the continent’s total trade, whereas intra-European trade is close to 70%, so the potential is significant.
In 2020 Foreign Direct Investment inflows into Africa of $40 billion were down from $47 billion in 2019, as a result of COVID. The financing gap for African SMEs is $245 billion in sub-Saharan Africa.
Many overseas countries – including China, the USA, France, the UK, India, Russia and others – are clamouring to increase their trade and investment links with Africa.
While there is a move to harmonisation, with more than 1,000 languages and numerous currencies across 55 countries and often different laws and standards, it is increasingly vital to address the different types of risks that may be associated with investment management in Africa. In the search for funding, African firms must understand the compliance expectations of both local and international investors. The Africa IRC Summit 2022 will focus on how to unlock the opportunities and mitigate challenges for the continent this year and beyond.
The full list of speakers and panellist will be available as the event draws nearer.
The summit helps investors uncover the real depth of investment opportunities in the region, understand how to navigate the investment journey and mitigate relevant investment risks, and connect with some of the most exciting African start-ups and fast-growth businesses across a range of sectors.
The summit helps companies looking for investment connect directly with high profile investors looking specifically for opportunities in Africa in a structured, supported environment designed to highlight the best your organisation and Africa has to offer.
The summit offers an opportunity for stakeholders in African investment to come together and share insight about how strengthening compliance and ESG can help unlock the investment opportunities in the region. The summit gives nations, banks and organisations and compliance teams a platform to showcase their own compliance success in mitigating relevant risks.
