Time: 24-25 March 2009
Venue: The Grosvenor, Victoria, London, United Kingdom

Just as with a number of emerging markets, the African continent is a region that will continue to show significant growth while economies in the developed world may struggle to maintain and in some cases, even contract.

Africa is home to some of the most resource-rich countries in the world and continues to be a key exporter of both hard and soft commodities. The continent holds strong ties to China and is a key contributor to its economy. As of late, in spite of pain being felt in the United States and Europe, there has been increased demand for Africa – China trade facilities.

To ensure you capitalise on the opportunities offered by Africa, They would like to invite you to attend IBC’s 2nd annual African Finance conference, where participants will determine how economies with GDP growth of 2%+ have benefited investors and financiers like you, and in which regions and industries this growth will continue.

You will hear discussions and key presentations on debt capital markets by some of the most respected financiers in the industry – including local financiers and borrowers.

Determine where the opportunities lie as Africa’s biggest growth areas are uncovered.
