Investing in Africa’s Future: Spotlight on Large-Scale Projects

Aligned with the objectives of the African Union’s Agenda 2063, the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA), and numerous regional and national development plans, large-scale projects are currently underway across the continent. Despite the challenging economic environment, these transformative initiatives span vital sectors such as energy, logistics, health, water, agribusiness, and education.

These critical investments play a pivotal role in enhancing competitiveness and the quality-of-service delivery. They form the nucleus of new ecosystems and attract skilled labor from across the continent and the globe, reduce dependency on foreign exchange, as well as contribute to capacity building across sectors. Such projects possess the capability to reshape entire industries within specific countries or regions, gradually redefining Africa’s position in the global economy.

The Africa Business Day is the largest annual platform in Switzerland for doing business in and with Africa. This year the event will be hosted by Novartis and will take place on 27 June 2024 at the Novartis Campus in Basel under the patronage of the State Secretariat for Economic Affairs SECO and organized by the Swiss-African Business Circle. The event will bring together CEOs, managing directors, country managers, business development managers, export managers, bankers, investors, governement official and representatives of Swiss and African Embassies/Missions to exchange on issues that affect them directly in their day-to-day business.
