The World Economic Forum on Africa is taking place in South Africa this week.
Leaders are gathered in Cape Town to discuss the challenges the continent faces, the progress that's already been made and how this can be continued.
They'll meet in the shadow of Table Mountain, a reminder of the natural beauty found across the country – even in the middle of the biggest cities.
What is the World Economic Forum on Africa?
With elections taking place in more than 20 African countries in 2019, the world’s youngest continent is facing a new era.
Held under the theme 'Shaping Inclusive Growth and Shared Futures in the Fourth Industrial Revolution' the 28th World Economic Forum on Africa will convene more than 1,000 regional and global leaders from government, business, civil society and academia.
The event (held 4-6 September 2019) will explore new regional partnerships and entrepreneurial and agile leadership to create pathways for shared prosperity and drive a sustainable future.
Participants will discuss ways to accelerate progress on five transformative pan-African agendas in the context of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, addressing the African Union’s Agenda 2063 priorities.
