Morocco Participates in Africa CEO Forum in Kigali


Kigali, 16/05/2024 (MAP) – The 2024 edition of the Africa CEO Forum opened on Thursday in Kigali, with the participation of nearly 2,000 business leaders and political decision-makers from several African countries, including Morocco.

The Kingdom is represented at this two-day event by a delegation led by Minister of Industry and Trade, Ryad Mezzour, and includes President of the General Confederation of Moroccan Companies (CGEM), Chakib Alj, Chairman and CEO of Royal Air Maroc (RAM), Abdelhamid Addou, and President of the Mohammed VI Polytechnic University, Hicham El Habti.

Themed “AI, Leadership, Common Market: How Africa can win its place at the table of tomorrow’s powers,” the Forum is the largest international gathering of the African private sector, according to the organizers.

Through more than 60 panels, public-private workshops and roundtables, participants from different backgrounds will explore the main directions for the continent’s future, tackling key themes such as leadership, NICTs, economic integration in Africa, finance and infrastructure, to highlight the driving role of the private sector in the continent’s development.

In a speech during the Forum’s opening ceremony, Rwandan President Paul Kagame stressed that the private sector in Africa and the world in general plays a central role in the trajectory of development, underlining the importance of integration in the development of African markets.

The multiple crises the world has experienced recently, such as climate change and the Covid-19 pandemic, have shown the need for public and private sectors to work closely together, he observed, noting that the integration of the African business community is an opportunity to develop the continent’s markets and enable Africa to become more competitive.

Organized by Jeune Afrique Media Group, in partnership with the International Finance Corporation (IFC), the event features a series of high-level conferences, debates and meetings dedicated to highlighting the driving role of the private sector in Africa’s development.
