The 4th Annual Africa Risk & Investment Forum
22 September 2015; 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.
Key themes to be addressed:
-Building a Business in Africa - The Long-Term View
-The Rising Risk Temperature of Currency and Stock Market Risk
-Rising Risk in a Low Commodity Price Environment
-As Africa Rises, Are its Politics Regressing?
-How to Neutralize the Threat of Terrorism
-Preventing and Protecting Data Fraud Theft and Cyber Attacks
-How Do We Manage Environmental Risk in Africa: Food Security, Climate Change, Natural Disasters and Water Security
