September 13, 2023

GABI is a platform for promoting business, trade, and investment across the continent.

African presidents, Chief Executive Officers (CEOs), ministers, investors and United Nations leaders would be joined by music, sports and film stars for an exclusive two-day forum on Africa’s future at Global Africa Business Initiative (GABI).

The two-day event, co-convened by the African Union on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly, serves as a pivotal forum for leaders to discuss and strategise the way forward for Africa’s dynamic business landscape.


Sanda Ojiambo, assistant secretary general and CEO of the UN Global Compact, said the event was a testament to the power of collaboration and innovation in amplifying Africa’s opportunities.

She said the landmark event would take place as Africa’s leaders worked collectively to leverage the continent’s assets, including a young population and abundant natural resources.

Ms Ojiambo said the initiative mirrors Africa’s aspiration to rise above challenges while turning challenges like climate change, energy constraints, water scarcity, and food supply into opportunities.

“GABI aims to catalyse Africa’s key role in the global marketplace, and ‘Unstoppable Africa’ is a powerful affirmation of GABI’s unwavering commitment to redefining Africa’s economic narrative and the world,” stated Ms Ojiambo. “The convening will facilitate solution-driven dialogues, inclusive participation, and enriching conversations and debates, all geared towards accelerating and amplifying Africa to new heights of business growth and economic transformation.”

She revealed that some confirmed participants include President Macky Sall, Mokgweetsi Eric Keabetswe Masisi, UN chief Antonio Guterres, Amina Mohammed (deputy secretary general), Wamkele Mene (secretary general of African Continental Free Trade Area), Akinwumi Adesina (AfDB president), and Benedict Oramah (AfreximBank president).

She said their partnership was rooted in the belief that economic growth and sustainable development in Africa were vital for the continent and the world.
