Event overview

The increasing popularity of Africa as a destination for Australian trade and investment, particularly in resources, has certainly been the success story of the past decade. CEDA's panel of Africa experts will look to the coming decade and answer the question: will this momentum continue or has Africa peaked?

Trade and investment are two major drivers of development, and as such, most African countries have significantly liberalised their exchange and trade regimes in recent decades. The relaxing of investment barriers has certainly born fruit, with one in 20 ASX-listed companies now having an investment in Africa.

While the burgeoning African resources industry has been the most publicised, other sectors such as education are also flourishing.

Yet, question marks remain over Africa's stability, technological barriers and resource nationalism. Can the recent levels of growth and investment experiences be sustained over the next decade, or is the bubble set to burst?
