October 29 - 30, 2013    Accra , Ghana
Africa’s recent economic surge is fueling optimism about the continent’s prospects and positioning it in the minds of many investors and businesses as a significant opportunity.

Blessed with a wealth of natural resources and a large, young and growing population, many economies in Africa are enjoying rates of growth and development that are the envy of the emerging world.

While sections of the continent still face steep challenges, Ghana is well placed to benefit from the forces of beneficial change in the region.

• Strong and sustained growth in recent years - with the country benefiting from high global commodity prices and continued political stability
• A youthful and better educated workforce, with half of the population under 20
• The emergence of a new generation of tech-savvy entrepreneurs. Ghana has one of the most developed telecommunications sectors in Africa, with mobile phone penetration surpassing the 100% barrier
• A concerted effort by the government to attract foreign investment and improve ease of doing business

However, Ghana faces serious challenges too. Its economy remains vulnerable to external factors—in particular the risk of a slowdown in China, the global commodity cycle and high inflation.
