ABIDJAN : GATEWAY TO ECOWAS

The sixth annual AFRICA CEO FORUM will take place from 26-27 March 2018, in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire.

After a fifth meeting, which recorded a significant increase in attendance, the continent’s leading decision-makers will once again be gathering in the Ivorian economic capital of Abidjan for the 2018 edition of the AFRICA CEO FORUM. With a 7% growth rate in 2016, Côte d’Ivoire is a driving force of regional integration within the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS). Côte d’Ivoire is a preferred destination for international investors due to an improving business environment and management of public finances, its robust financial system and rapidly developing infrastructure. This is highlighted by the fact that Côte d’Ivoire was recently able to raise nearly $2 billion on international financial markets.
