Absa at WEF
Absa is a member of the World Economic Forum
Absa Group is a Strategic Partner Associate of the World Economic Forum and will be attending the World Economic Forum on Africa, taking place in Cape Town from 4-6 September, 2019.
As a proudly African bank with a rich heritage across the continent dating back more than 100 years, our participation in the meetings is critical. Our delegation will participate in the official gathering, meet clients and stakeholders and host a range of activities at the Absa Dome on the sidelines of the meeting in Cape Town.
The theme for the meeting is ‘Shaping Inclusive Growth and Shared Futures in the Fourth Industrial Revolution’. If Africa is to seize the possibility that the Fourth Industrial Revolution presents, we need to mobilize large scale, sustained public and private activity and investment.
Given our systemically important role on the continent and our enduring commitment to Africa’s success, we believe that we have a critical role to play in shaping society and making Africa the next global frontier in investment.
