PAN-AFRICAN INVEST IN AFRICA
The PANAFCON will soon be inviting African descendants and Africans throughout the entire globe to join us for our 1st Pan-African Invest in Africa Conference & Exhibition to be held in Kigali, Rwanda! Spurring African-American and other Diasporan investment and business in Africa, the conference will address healing and reconciliation needs of Africans of the Diaspora. Particularly, we will address reconciling Diasporan descendants of slavery with the mainland of Africa.
While a myriad of groups around the globe are interested in and taking advantage of opportunities to invest and do business in Africa, Africans of the Diaspora, particularly African-Americans with a current buying power of nearly USD$1.5 trillion, greatly lack presence in African business markets and investment destinations despite having an historically established right to invest in Africa.
This conference will be unique in that it will be the first modern Pan-African conference that seeks to pragmatically reconcile African descendants with the continent of Africa while strongly encouraging and enlightening African-Americans and other members of the African Diaspora on practical opportunities to invest in and develop business in Africa.
In 2019 The PANAFCON invited African-American men and women with interest in entrepreneurship and business as well as African-American thought leaders, investors, and academia to join The PANAFCON’s delegation to Cape Town, South Africa from October 27 – November 2, 2019 to partake in the uniquely enriching Africa Women Innovation & Entrepreneurship Forum (AWIEF) Conference, Exhibition, and Awards Gala. In addition to the AWIEF Conference, delegates were invited to experience the beauty and learn about all of the opportunities that Cape Town has to offer during our post-conference Business and Leisure Tour activities.
ZAMBIA BUSINESS & INVESTMENT TOUR
In 2015 The PANAFCON hosted the Zambia Business & Investment Tour for entities, companies and individuals from around the globe who were interested in Business & Investment opportunities in emerging African markets. The tour was a combination of tourism activities and informative sessions about investment opportunities in Zambia. The tour covered 8 cities/towns and 6 provinces visiting some of Zambia's most ideal touristic/scenic locations that coordinated well with key investment sectors.
