Our panel’s perspective

Africa’s economic landscape is changing rapidly. Our experts will explore the continent’s key growth drivers and highlight its significant investment potential, focussing on infrastructure projects, financial innovation and access to credit markets.

Through Linklaters global network, we bring insight direct from some of Africa’s key markets. Our view of the continent is shaped by experience, vision and an ability to see things differently.
