Source The Ghana Report

Ghana is set to host the maiden edition of the Africa Prosperity Dialogues program which will take place from Thursday 26 to Saturday 28 January 2023 for all African political and business leaders.

President of the Republic of Ghana Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and the Secretary General of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) His Excellency Wamkele Mene noted that the launch of the African Prosperity Dialogue would help to bring innovative ideas that can boost industrial growth in African countries.

Moreover, the dialogue series is aimed at elaborating on ideas that can help reshape the initiative of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) geared towards entrepreneurship and industrialization in African countries.

In recent times, global geopolitical turmoil has exposed Africa’s overreliance on the global supply chain and on exports of natural resources. It has also highlighted how important it is for Africa to strengthen the capacity for greater intra-African reliance and cushioning against exogenous shocks.

“The Africa Prosperity Dialogues will incorporate the launch of various platforms for political and business leaders on the continent and in the diaspora to think, plan and collaborate towards building the world’s largest single market of Africa’s 1.4 billion people. This will help to create more opportunities for African citizens and build a more prosperous Africa.

Dubbed the “Kwahu Summit” because the concept was developed at the Rock City Hotel in the Kwahu Mountains of eastern Ghana, the dialogue series will also help bring into sharp focus the continent’s critical challenges, outline its industrialization priorities, and aggressively advance the commercial and infrastructural interventions required to achieve the goal of deepening intercontinental trade”.

The upcoming dialogues will take place in two parts. The first will feature the Business and Policy Leaders’ Dialogue – a retreat for business executives and associations, senior public figures, thought leaders, technocrats, and the Association of Africa Investment Promotion Agencies.

This event will take place on 26 and 27 January at the idyllic Safari Valley Resort in Aburi on the mountainous Akuapem Ridge.

The second part which will be hosted by President Akufo-Addo will take place on Saturday 28 January 2023. President Akufo-Addo will be joined by a number of colleague heads of state from across the eight regional blocs on the African continent.

Among the leaders invited are the presidents of Benin, Côte d’Ivoire, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Egypt, Guinea-Bissau, Kenya, Niger, Nigeria, the Republic of Congo, Rwanda, Senegal, and South Africa.

Accomplished entrepreneurs, industrialists, economists, bankers, and other business leaders in Africa and beyond have also confirmed their participation in the African political and business leaders dialogue program.
