Senior Anchor Bronwyn Nielsen will moderate the session. Under the theme ‘Delivering on Africa’s Promise’, the 23rd ‘World Economic Forum on Africa’ will provide an important platform for regional and global leaders from business, government and civil society to deepen the continent’s integration agenda and renew commitment to a sustainable path of growth and development.

 

Some of the key issues and questions that will be tackled during the live panel discussion include, bolstering infrastructure, developing regional markets, empowering women farmers and enabling private-sector investment. How are partnerships in the region accelerating investment in agriculture?

 

“CNBC Africa’s staple diet is the unprecedented economic expansion we have seen in the past decade and throughout the week we will find the key voices driving that growth,” said Godfrey Mutizwa, CNBC Africa’s Chief Editor. “For anyone seeking a deeper understanding of Africa’s growth engines, there can be no better place as we will conduct live interviews, panel discussions, debates and exclusive one-on-ones with the key decision makers.”
