Aliko Dangote, PDG Dangote Group Nigeria has been listed among the speakers at a transcontinental forum taking place in Algiers at the beginning of December supported by the global publishing firm, Oxford Business Group (OBG).

The conference will focus on the key role earmarked for the 9022-km Trans-Sahara Highway in facilitating deeper trade relations between Algeria and several African markets, including Nigeria.

The African Investments and Business Forum which is slated for December 3rd – 5th at the International Conference Centre is supported by the Algerian government and the Algerian Business Leaders Forum (FCE).

The event will bring together more than 2000 industry and public sector representatives from across the continent, including several government leaders.

Brahim Benabdeslem, vice-president of the FCE, said the forum would provide an important platform for collective sharing and co-development. He also welcomed the meeting’s location.

He said, “Algeria wishes to play a central role in building adhesion among countries across the continent and will strive to push the African continent toward being a global economic powerhouse.”

The African Investments and Business Forum will provide business leaders and public sector representatives with an unparalleled opportunity to explore and reflect on the key issues currently affecting economic development throughout the continent. It will also provide a platform for participants to discuss the African Union’s strategies for boosting intra-African trade.

“These are the key elements that will shape the programme of this event and drive the new inter-African dynamic, as well as an economic vision that is balanced, coherent and inclusive,” ToufikLerari, president of Jil’FCE, said.

With a focus on seeking out African solutions to African problems, the Algiers event is a significant step towards collective autonomy. It will provide business leaders keen to contribute to the continent’s economic development with the means to learn more about the opportunities available to them.
