The Africa CEO forum is the foremost platform for CEOs and officials of African international companies to share experiences and ideas expand their networking systems and find new financial partners in the continent and beyond.


They also use the forum as the vehicle or driving force in the development of the African private sector, learn from the best practices of fast-growing companies in the continent, and promote their companies within the African continent and beyond.


Since the first CEO forum edition in 2012, it has become the flagship forum for African investors and their partners to fine-tune their development agenda in the continent.


More than 800 participants, made up of 500 CEOs from the African continent, 100 bankers and investors, 200 high profiled African and international personnel are attending the 2016 edition hosted by Groupe Jeune Afrique in partnership with the African Development Bank and rainbow unlimited.
