Accelerating Africa’s inclusive and sustainable growth agenda

Africa’s economic outlook remains mixed. It features several of the fastest-growing economies in the world, but the average growth rate is below the global average. Commodity driven economies still face hardship, but also offer opportunities for economic diversification and reforms.

Regional agenda

The Forum’s Africa regional community has identified three priorities: integration, industrialization and innovation. The community is addressing these issues through thought leadership, by fostering scalable innovative collaborations, and by driving rapid transformation.

Current activities in the region are organised in the following countries: Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Congo, Côte d'Ivoire, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, Gabon, Ghana, Guinea, Kenya, Liberia, Malawi, Mali, Mauritius, Mozambique, Niger, Nigeria, Rwanda, Senegal, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Tanzania, Togo and Uganda.

Regional engagement with Africa encompasses a series of projects and meetings, which align with the Forum’s System Initiatives.
