22nd Annual Africa Business Conference @ Harvard Univ (2/14 &/215/2020): post event update

Hello, I was honored to serve on the panel titled: Business Shifting Beyond Borders: From China’s FDI to the African Continental Free Trade Area

It was really wonderful and insightful panel.  We received a ton of positive feedback afterwards from the attendees.

Fellow panel members were:

Moderator:  Dr. Abdoulkadre Ado

Dr. Dennie M. Beach: Go Africa Global LLC, President/CEO

Antoinette Kwofie: Barclays Bank Ghana Limited, : Executive Director, Finance

Brionne Dawson:  U.S. Chamber of Commerce, U.S.-Africa Business Center, Senior Director

Gbolahan Elias:  Company: G. Elias & Co.,  Partner

Faridah Usman:  Kuramo Capital Management,  Vice President

Overview: 

Panel Title: Business Shifting Beyond Borders: From China’s FDI to the African Continental
Free Trade Area
Overview: In today’s era, as economic protectionism is being increasingly observed in countries
around the world, African countries are instead leading the charge for economic openness.
Between inflows of Foreign Direct Investment from China and the newly-ratified African
Continental Free Trade Agreement, African economies and businesses are gaining access to a
broader range of capital, goods, services, and labor. Questions remain though: How can African
businesses, in particular SMEs, best prepare for the competitive challenges of these freer
flows? Regarding FDI, how can African businesses and governments ensure equitable gains
from investments? With a free trade agreement in place, what hurdles – infrastructural, financial,
or otherwise – must businesses still overcome to ensure they can actually conduct that trade?
