On the sidelines of the 27th Africa-France Summit, an Africa-France Youth and Entrepreneurship Forum will be organized. It will draw many young leaders from both continents.
This forum, the first of its kind, has its origin in the Medef held on December 6 and 7, 2016 in France and which brought together public and private decision-makers, young people, media, diasporas, entrepreneurs, creators, African employers and their stakeholders. This Forum will be held in Bamako on the sidelines of the summit and will attract many young leaders who have taken action to advance the continent.
According to Abdoullah Coulibaly, chairman of the Africa France Summit Organizing Committee, he is in the process of negotiating to bring the heavyweights to this meeting. Among them we can cite the Nigerian billionaire Aliko Dangoté, the founder of Ecobank and the boss of the company SKIN.
This forum will lay the foundations for African leadership by 2030. To support this ambition, the continent needs active youth, creators of sustainable and inclusive growth.
