Tue, 09 Oct 09:30 AM - 10:30 AMAfrica Agenda 2063 Plenary panel session
#Hall 1
An aspiration of the Africa Agenda 2063 is that the necessary infrastructure will be in place to support Africa’s accelerated integration and growth, technological transformation, trade and development. This will include high-speed railway networks, roads, shipping lines, sea and air transport, as well as well-developed ICT and the digital economy. A Pan-African High-Speed Train Network will connect all the major cities/capitals of the continent, with adjacent highways and pipelines for gas, oil, water, as well as ICT Broadband cables and other infrastructure.Talking points:Africa Agenda 2063 is considered a catalyst for manufacturing, skills development, technology, research and development, integration and intra-African trade, investments and tourism. Are these 2063 goals realistic and attainable?One of the impediments preventing existing agreements like Continental Free Trade Area (CFTA) - one of Agenda 2063’s trade goals of increasing intra-Africa trade from functioning effectively - is that there is no supporting infrastructure to connect countries. This is due to a lack of adequate supporting road and rail infrastructure. Clearly collaboration between government and business is crucial to the achievement of transformative change and growth?How do we ensure that Agenda 2063 becomes a reality and what role can business play in the development of Agenda 2063?

#Hall 2
The economic development challenges facing Africa include the highest population growth globally, low growth in infrastructure stock, low levels of intra-regional economic exchange, and remains the least integrated continent. However, for the first time in many decades, there is encouraging economic progress in many African countries. This is reflective of the implementation of sound economic policies, a move towards rules-based institutions, and participatory forms of government that foster consensus between state, business and civil society. Urban corridors, mega urban regions and city regions are emerging across Africa, including across national borders and they are playing an important role in establishing large and regular trade flows which in turn create business and employment opportunities. The South African government’s strategy has sought to ensure to ensure that State Owned Companies (SOCs) lead in addressing the high levels of unemployment, poverty and inequality. In these improved business conditions, the SOCs have a major role to play in the development of the continent acting as crucial implementation agents. Talking points: How do State Owned Companies across the continent help to develop Industrial Corridors and unlock growth?Infrastructure inefficiencies are costing the continent billions of dollars annually, closing the disparities in infrastructure is vital for economic advancement and sustainable development; what are potential solutions?Is there a role for business to work with State Owned Enterprises in growing the Industrial Corridors and if so how and in what manner?How can business engage and what is the business opportunity linked to the Corridors?
