The Africa Prosperity Network (APN), in partnership with the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) Secretariat and the Office of the President of the Republic of Ghana, will launch the Africa Prosperity Dialogues (APD) 2025 on Monday 13 May 2024.

The launch, which will be a side event at the 3i Africa Summit, will take place at Africa Trade House, the headquarters of the AfCFTA Secretariat, in Accra, Ghana.

The unveiling of APD 2025 will highlight the pressing need for increased investment in integrated infrastructure networks across Africa to facilitate seamless connectivity of people, businesses and markets.

Presentations and discussions at the ceremony will explore strategies aimed at accelerating infrastructure development, fostering regional integration and harnessing the opportunities presented by the AfCFTA.

Respected guests and speakers expected at the launch of the 2025 edition of the APD include His Excellency Albert M Muchanga, the trade and industry commissioner with the African Union Commission, His Excellency Wamkele Mene, the secretary general of the AfCFTA Secretariat, and Solomon Quaynor, vice-president in charge of the private sector, infrastructure and industrialisation at the African Development Bank Group.

In a briefing ahead of the launch, the executive chairman of APN, Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko observed: “Infrastructure is the backbone of economic growth and regional integration in Africa and the entire continent and its business and political leaders must think out the continent’s much-needed soft and hard infrastructure.

“APD 2025 will serve as a catalyst for mobilising African stakeholders to invest in game-changing infrastructure projects that will unlock Africa’s boundless potential,” Otchere-Darko said.

The launch event will feature a panel discussion, networking opportunities and engagement with policymakers, development partners, private sector leaders and civil society organisations at the forefront of advancing Africa’s prosperity agenda.
