The fifth edition of the AFRICA CEO FORUM, the largest international gathering dedicated to the African private sector, will take place on 20 and 21 March 2017 in Geneva. Many prominent Nigerian CEOs are expected to take part to the event to meet international bankers and investors with a growing interest in investing in Africa.

More than 1000 participants from over 63 countries will gather at the AFRICA CEO FORUM, the foremost international event dedicated to the African private sector. CEOs of the largest African and international companies, bankers and investors most active in Africa as well as decision-makers from the fastest growing African economies will meet at the two-day event to gain strategic insights and share their objectives around development and investment with the business and financial community.

With the global economic slowdown posing a challenge to the growth of African economies, the upcoming edition of the AFRICA CEO FORUM reflects the will of participants, African companies and countries, to revitalize investment flows toward the African continent in order to drive the implementation of their infrastructure and development projects.

A number of leading Nigerian CEOs are expected to attend next year’s event; their strategic priorities are reflected in the programme of thematic conferences and meetings.

Since 2012, Aliko Dangote, CEO of Dangote Group  [honoured African company of the year at the AFRICA CEO FORUM AWARDS 2016], Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, former finance minister of Nigeria, Kola Karim, CEO of Shoreline Energy International, Corneille Karekezi, CEO of Africa-Re, Oba Otudeko, Chairman of Honeywell Group, Emmanuel Nnorom, CEO of Transcorp Nigeria, Uche Orji, CEO of the Nigeria Sovereign Investment Authority, Akin Akinfemiwa, Group CEO of Forte Oil Plc, Oscar Onyema, CEO of Nigeria Stock Exchange and Kingsley Moghalu, former Deputy Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria among other prominent Nigerian figures, have all attended the AFRICA CEO FORUM.
