By 2020, the collective GDP of Africa will be $2.6 trillion, consumer spending would exceed $1.4 trillion. With its rich reserves of natural resources and good GDP growth rates for over a decade, Africa is too good an opportunity to let go. All it requires is the coming together of the thought leaders from Africa and across the globe to discuss and address critical issues and highlight the path to augment the growth and robustness of financial and capital markets in Africa through collaborative efforts.
Global Board of Trade (GBOT) endeavors to cater to the need of such a forum through its annual flagship summit titled "AFRICAN ECHOES" - ECONOMIC AND FINANCIAL LEADERSHIP SUMMIT to be held on 16th October, 2010, 0900 hrs at the Intercontinental Mauritius Resort, Balaclava Fort.
