AfricanBrains is delighted that President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has chosen to work with us to organise Next Generation Africa 2014. This is because of the outstanding portfolio and achievement of AfricanBrains in bringing government leaders and captains of industry together. Our last 4 ministerial summits in Gaborone, Amman, Cape Town and Victoria Falls have attracted over 75 ministers and deputies along with over 200 government officials. Our corporate partners participate because of the reach we provide at the highest level and our appreciation of the need for global executives to make the most effective use of their time. AfricanBrains testimonials bear witness to this.
“AfricanBrains has brought to meetings with Government what mass production brought to the automotive industry. So much is achieved over an intense period.”
Mr Fasil Bekele – Director, Public Private Alliances, Microsoft Middle East & Africa
“The conversation is at a level where ministers, permanent secretaries and deputy directors are able to interact and take deliberate action immediately.”
Mr Suresh Subramanian – WW Vice President & General Manager, Industry Solutions, HP
Next Generation Africa 2014 is a high-level African ministerial summit which has been specially created for heads of private sector corporations and leaders in industry. Everyone who attends will be guaranteed pre-scheduled one-to-one meetings with ministers and senior government officials from over 20 African countries. These countries are the next generation of African economies that are already enjoying enormous growth in foreign direct investment, economic production and social welfare.
The Summit will be hosted by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and her key cabinet ministers who will be ensuring the participation of their counterpart officials from other invited African countries. The focus of the summit together with the pre-scheduled meetings with ministers will reflect the 4 key economic pillars of the emerging African economies:
- Energy & Natural Resources
- Education, Research & Innovation
- Telecommunications & Information Technology
- Health & Medical Care
Key to participation is being able to pre-schedule meetings with ministers and officials from these sectors.
“Governments in Africa are using our technology through the contacts we have made at AfricanBrains organised events.”
