FT Africa Summit 2017
What Makes Africa Work?

8-9 October 2017 | London, Claridge's

We will shed light on the new models of development finance and growth investing and discuss the rising prices of commodities, focusing on how to maximize the value of the extraction industry and big gas projects. The dynamic CEO panel will be returning, followed by a range of panelists from the worlds of marketing, media and publishing, who will talk about what Africans want.
