#WEFAfrica: The World Economic Forum On Africa Begins Today In Rwanda

More than 1,200 people are gathering in Kigali, Rwanda’s capital city for the World Economic Forum on Africa which starts today May 11. They are from more than 70 countries and they represent business, government, academia, civil society, media and the arts. They will be discussing under the theme Connecting Africa’s Resources through Digital Transformation at the event that explores Africa’s prospects and priorities as the world enters the Fourth Industrial Revolution, in line with the theme of the Annual Meeting which was Mastering the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

The discussion in Kigali will continue where WEF’s Annual Meeting in Davos-Klosters in January left off: by seeking to identify priorities and actions for Africa’s leaders as they look to build economies resilient to today’s challenges and able to flourish in the increasingly digital, convergent marketplaces of tomorrow.
