ASEA believes that the African continent is increasingly being viewed by investors worldwide as a very promising investment destination with tremendous growth potential. The key to maintaining sustained interest in the continent’s investment opportunities lies in the commitment to continued improvement of the business climate on the continent and the development of vibrant capital markets.
Alongside the keynote address, delegates attending the four-day conference will enjoy Abidjan’s culture of hospitality and visit great cultural sites. This conference helps offer exposure and visibility to ASEA members and partners during the forum.
