The summit aims to forge a pathway towards the future of finance in Africa and re-define value exchange for Africans, especially as the continent adapts to digital solutions.
The three-day event themed “The Future of Finance in Africa: Our pathway to a new Africa” will feature a thought-leadership conference, where attendees will deliberate and provoke conversations on issues affecting financial technology innovations in Africa. Additionally, the summit will address policies and legislations that will guarantee a sustainable conducive environment for the uptake of these technologies, the empowerment of current and successive generations, the implementation of blockchain and related technologies across Africa, and how African governments and the private sector can leverage the convergence of various transformational technologies to chart the trajectory of the socio-economic growth on the African continent.
