1. About the 11th Edition African Union Private Sector Forum.

The African Union Commission, has throughout the years worked closely with the private sector to define the significant role and great contribution by the Private sector in driving the economic development Agenda of the continent. The efforts are a demonstration of the African Union’s commitment towards enhancing the private sector capacity to contribute towards the realization of Agenda 2063 and be part of the global value-chain, for inclusive and sustainable growth in Africa. The African Annual Private Sector Forum has over the years expanded its participation and remains one of the strategic platforms organized by the African Union Commission to engage policymakers, private sector representatives, academia, civil societies and development organizations, among other key stakeholders.

The AU Commission is organizing the 11th Edition under the theme “Transforming African Economies through mobilization of the Private sector and the Capitalization of Good practices from other regions of the world”. The 2019 Forum is bringing together high-profile and influential African and international businessmen and women to share their experiences and provide engaging and thought-provoking discussions that would drive momentum in implementing and/or enhancing policies for thriving business environment. The 11th Edition is expected to attract investors and encourage greater business transactions, especially within the context of the recently launched African Continental Free Trade Area (AFCTA) and marshal advocacy, sharing of information and commercial skills for the transformation of African economies.

in its previous ten (10) Editions, the Forum has evolved to focus on the wide range of Africa’s development priorities and successfully provided a platform for information exchange, business networking and policy recommendations including business development services, regulatory reforms, and capacity-building for women and youth, with a particular focus on strengthening local micro, small and medium size enterprises.
