The 4th ALN Annual International Conference was held at Park Hyatt Hotel in Dubai on the 4 and 5 of October and was attended by over 400 high-level business leaders, investors and government representatives in the course of the two days.We are extremely pleased with the consistent positive feedback from all who participated.The conversation on day one focused on the promise of Africa’s future and the untapped economic and investment opportunities the continent offers. We were reminded that unlocking Africa’s potential will only be possible if we harness the power of its people.Former President of the Republic of Nigeria, H.E. Olusegun Obasanjo, led the discussion by urging delegates not to focus on the past, but rather look to the future and remain optimistic about Africa’s prosperity. He highlighted Africa’s boundless possibilities and noted that there is “no magic” to leading a successful nation. With the right leadership, Africa can overcome its demographic challenges if we make sound investments in infrastructure and focus on good governance.We were honoured to also be joined by His Excellency Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, Minister for Culture, Youth and Social Development for the UAE.
