Africa In-Person event: The Investment Decision

In this informative and engaging session, we bring C-suites from multinationals and local firms from multiple industries together to discuss, unpack and engage on strategies needed to continue to drive investment and reinvestment in the country. Through these discussions, we will hear success stories, and from companies that have expanded their investment footprint in the market to understand what opportunities, risks and challenges are present.

About the event

Maneuvering through the investment landscape has been difficult in the past 5 years, and 2023 has proved yet another challenging year for South Africa. The load shedding crisis, lack of efficiency in transport infrastructure, political uncertainty, high inflation and geopolitical tension have provided a difficult climate for justifying investing or re-investing in South Africa. Further, the recent expansion of the BRICS economic bloc presents tremendous opportunity, while at the same time requiring the C-suite of the next three years to be at the cutting edge of developments in this space to make sure that risks are appropriately minimised while maximising on new opportunities

This event is key for any C-suite looking to build and justify investment in the country, as we unpack and examine, among other issues:

-Current trends in the investment landscape in South Africa
-The state of the global competition to South Africa as an investment destination
-What the expansion of BRICS means for South Africa’s investment space
