Hailemariam Dessalegn, Prime Minister of Ethiopia, guest of honor at the AFRICA CEO FORUM 2017

Hailemariam Dessalegn, Prime Minister of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia will participate in the 5th edition of the AFRICA CEO FORUM, alongside 1000 international and African economic decision-makers, including 300 top investors.

As the second largest African market, Ethiopia is one of the most robust and best performing economies on the continent, with a two-digit growth rate over the past 10 years (a 10,8% annual average since 2005).

Accompanied by a delegation of Ethiopian CEOs, the Prime Minister will present the strategic orientations of his economic policy as well as several concrete investment projects in high potential sectors. The Ethiopian Government has launched significant programmes in sectors such as transport, telecommunications, energy and industry, especially textile industry, to accelerate the structural transformation of the country’s economy.

The Ethiopian Prime Minister will also participate in the “Head of State panel” where he will discuss Ethiopia’s economic outlook, highlighting the private sector’s role in its growth dynamic. In 2016, the Presidents of Côte d’Ivoire and Ghana participated in this unique panel which has since become a highlight of the
AFRICA CEO FORUM’s programme.
Set up in partnership with the African Development Bank, the AFRICA CEO FORUM is an event organized jointly by Groupe Jeune Afrique, publisher of Jeune Afrique and The Africa Report, and rainbow unlimited, a Swiss company specializing in the organization of economic promotion events.

Launched in 2012, the AFRICA CEO FORUM has established itself as the foremost international event dedicated to the development of the African private sector. In 2016, the AFRICA CEO FORUM hosted nearly 1000 African and international public figures including 600 CEOs from 43 African countries and 100 high-level speakers.

  1. The world powers have made it “fashionable” to invade other countries and African Leaders in typical “monkey see, monkey do” fashion are blindly imitating their (current and former) masters.

    Since when did it ever make any difference as to whom is in power in “ANY” given country “ANYWHERE” in the world?

    All you have to do is to look at the results of all these invasions :: from Iraq, Afghanistan, Ukraine, Palestine, Syria, Libya, Lebanon, Sudan, Somalia, etc. Nothing good ever came out of these wars, invasions and “interventions.”

    It’s time for leaders from all over the world :: not just Africa :: to stop being a bunch of Imbeciles and Morons.
