On June 29th, a day of conferences and debates, "Africa Day", will be dedicated to environmental issues and digital opportunities for a new Africa, addressed by numerous European and African experts. They will follow one another in evoking "Green Africa" (reforestation, agribusiness, hydropower, oil & mining ...) and the impact of digital technologies on the development of Africa (ICT, financial services, e-government, e-services). Thus, the guests will discover the full potential of this continent which will have more than 2 billion inhabitants by 2050, 50% of which will be under 25 years old.
Current situation, difficulties, opportunities and major challenges
Monaco and Africa
At a time when we are living in an uncertain economic climate, Africa appears to be a major challenge for the future of Europe... The lung of the world with its forests and the importance of its arable land, this continent, which has a first-rate energy potential, also relies on digital technologies to bring its dynamism into the present. The Club des Entrepreneurs Monégasques en Afrique (CEMA), in partnership with the Monaco Economic Board (MEB) and the Fédération des Entreprises Monégasques (FEDEM), would like to introduce the Principality's business leaders to this bold Africa.
This initiative is supported by the Monegasque authorities but also by the French Council of Investors in Africa (CIAN), The European Business Council for Africa (EBCAM), the Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture Belgium, Luxembourg, Africa, Caribbean and Pacific (CBL ACP). At the media level, Afrique Magazine will be a faithful partner of the event.
