Under the slogan « SHAPING THE FUTURE OF AFRICA, the appointment is made for the 20th and 21st of March 2017 in Geneva, Switzerland, for the 5th edition of the AFRICA CEO FORUM. The AFRICA CEO FORUM (ACF), organized by the Jeune Afrique Group, is today the largest international private sector conference in Africa. ACF is an exceptional platform for debate and reflection on the economic and industrial challenges facing Africa. The organizing committee has registered more than 1,600 participating companies since the first edition, more than 600 CEOs, more than 1,000 participants and 63 countries represented.
CAC International has actively sponsored and supported the initiative since the first edition as they share the same optimistic view of Africa, « Building Africa’s Future ». This year, the ACF will be centered on the theme « Re-thinking Africa’s business model ». According to ACF President Amir Ben Yahmed, the private sector must play an even more central role in the sustainable transformation of the African economic model.
The event will be held for two intense days during which more than 1,000 African and international personalities from industry, finance and politics will debate these future themes at high-level conferences and high-level roundtables, while benefiting from many opportunities for business meetings.
Jérôme Minlend, CEO of CAC International, will speak as an expert on FMCG (Fast Moving Consumer Goods) around an ACF roundtable on March 21, 2017. An unforgettable moment of reflection and exchange to come!
