The CEO Africa Roundtable will hold its annual conference next month at the Elephant Hills Hotel in the resort town of Victoria Falls, Business Times can report.
The flagship event , which will run from 11 to 14 October 2023, will be run under the theme “Towards African Renaissance: Prospering through Smart Partnerships”.
More than 400 delegates, including CEOs from Zimbabwe and other African nations as well as other executives from the private and public sectors who make decisions for their organizations, are anticipated to attend.
The event this year takes place as the economy continues to experience challenges like currency and exchange rate volatility, high inflation, high interest rates, low levels of investment, climate change, and geopolitical risks, among many other issues.
To navigate such economic headwinds as business, one needs shrewd alliances and efficient platforms for legitimate engagements and transactions. This is necessary to ensure that overall national and regional economic activities generate a sizable share in the global arena.
The mission of CEO Africa Roundtable is to offer a strong and significant platform for promoting economic growth on the continent.
Some of the prominent speakers at the event will be Shingayi Mutasa, the Group CEO of Masawara, Obey Chimuka, the founder and Group CEO of Fossil Group, West Property chairman Kenneth Sharpe and Justin Bgoni, the Zimbabwe Stock Exchange CEO.
Other speakers include Dr. Patrice Talla Takoukam, the resident representative of the United Nations Organization for Food & Culture, Mike Juru, the CEO of Integrated Properties, Benjamin Huss, the CEO of Huss Group, Fidelia Gandiya, the sustainability general manager at Econet Wireless Zimbabwe, and numerous others.
The CEO Africa Roundtable, now in its ninth edition, has changed from being a purely annual event to a permanent platform that allows African decision-makers to continuously connect with one another, as well as with foreign investors and institutions operating on the continent.
Thus, CEO Africa Roundtable offer its members and the business leaders’ space for in-person and digital events, experts’ insights, enhance connections and transactions as well as provide room for exchange of ideas and experiences.
