4th Annual Africa Risk & Investment Forum

22 October 2015, Deloitte Place, Woodmead, Johannesburg, 08h00-16h00

Whilst sub-Saharan Africa’s economic growth outlook remains relatively robust, the story of 2015 so far in the region has been about declining commodity prices, rising political risk in central Africa and ongoing concerns over security in East and West Africa. Dominant regional economies that include Nigeria and Kenya continue to face the threat of terrorism. Undoubtedly the risk of terrorism, political and economic sustainability is a threat to business activity in many countries on the continent. Despite these rising challenges, Africa presents attractive commercial opportunities. Drawn by the continent's promising prospects for strong economic growth and its abundant resources and growing consumer markets, multinational companies are entering and expanding their business footprints in Africa. The relatively high financial returns in Africa are a reflection of the perceived high risk of doing business on the continent.

These key developments will be discussed and debated with leading African thought-leaders at the upcoming 4th Annual Africa Risk and Investment Forum on the 22nd October at Deloitte Place in Woodmead, Johannesburg.
