Dr. Brian Reuben Calls for a New Story for Africa at the Africa Economic Summit in Accra

The Africa Economic Summit 2023, themed “New Africa, New Opportunities,” kicked off today in Ghana with a clear objective of establishing Africa as a frontier of global thinking on major economic, cultural, and social issues affecting the world. The two-day event brings together heads of states, ministers, lawmakers, governors, heads of financial institutions, CEOs of leading companies in Africa, investors, thought leaders, international media, and other stakeholders to discuss and provide strategic guidelines on the competitiveness of African nations.

In his opening address, Dr. Brian Reuben, CEO of the Africa Economic Summit Group, highlighted the opportunity presented to Africa by the current state of the world to rewrite the story of Africa. He noted that history shows that value shifts are always triggered by a new story, and the summit provides a platform to showcase Africa, highlight its infrastructure, business environment, and diverse human capital, and drive foreign direct investment.

The summit convenes thought leaders from across Africa to establish concrete pathways to addressing compelling issues and provides new perspectives and stimulates strategic discussions around Africa’s economic challenges and policy priorities. Through keynote addresses, special sessions, round table discussions, and theme-focused strategic sessions with distinguished thought leaders and subject matter experts, the summit aims to discuss critical issues and help business and political leaders gain clarity on issues of prime importance.

The Africa Economic Summit 2023 also offers participants the chance to forge a path forward to necessary solutions on issues affecting the world with ambitious African leadership.
