LIBREVILLE, Gabon, May 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
A determination to achieve inclusive growth is at the heart of the third edition of the New York Forum AFRICA, the world's foremost African business forum, which will be held in Libreville, Gabon, May 23-25. Over 1,000 business and political leaders from around the world will participate in this year's New York Forum AFRICA.
Although Africa's economy has grown rapidly in the last decade, questions have been raised about whether this growth is sustainable and inclusive. Many are concerned that the growth will fail to create sufficient jobs and raise living standards, and that the huge infrastructure projects will damage the ecosystem irreparably.
The business and political leaders that gather in Libreville in May 2014 will engage in intense, collaborative sessions to draw up a roadmap for inclusive, sustainable growth. The New York Forum AFRICA is organized around a number of major debates that examine the key economic and business issues for Africa today.
The event is held under the patronage of H.E. Ali Bongo Ondimba, President of Gabonese Republic, founded by New York Forum Institute Chairman and Richard Attias. Now in its third year, the New York Forum AFRICA brings together heads of state and ministers, private sector leaders, NGOs and investors to debate the economic challenges and opportunities in Africa.
