AEF-2011 is preceded by our 2nd Sub-Saharan Africa Business Briefing 2011 on the Monday 7th March, with Presentations from Dr Duncan Clarke (Chairman & CEO, Global Pacific & Partners), a leading strategist on Africa, followed by our 36th PetroAfricanus Dinner in Africa the same evening, with Guest Speaker.

The Program, with Exhibition, provides an intensive tour de l’Afrique, revealing insights on the issues confronting Africa’s future commercial, business and socio-economic trajectories.

Africa’s Content-Rich Meeting Place

This rich-content Conference, providing deep insight, makes the AEF-2011 unique, unrivalled and an unmatched corporate and business event never before witnessed within or on Africa.

Presentations are made available online post-Conference to all delegates on our e-Conference facility, for direct download.

AEF-2011 deals with fundamentals, hardball issues in economics shaping markets, the overt and hidden business trends, shifting political economy across the Continent’s evolving diversity, and the critical commercial dimensions defining Africa’s future.

Connect AEF-2011

Come and connect with Africa’s leading decision-makers, interface with new ideas, companies, players and critical business thinking, discover the key emerging trends, and become part of the growing African business architecture and continent-wide deal flow.

The AEF-2011 themes and foci are designed around hard-edged business questions, not the soft issues that litter other meetings and often lead to inconclusive insights and decisions on the core portfolio that Africa must depend upon for its survival and success.

Think Tanks, Economists, Authors

Global Pacific & Partners has invited a number of Africa’s Think Tanks, economists and policy experts, as well as selected authors to participate in AEF-2011, as a means to connect cutting-edge African thinking with the emerging business and investor paradigm.
