The UCL Africa Conference
INVESTING IN AFRICA.
What's Our Why?
UCL's Inaugural Africa Conference was created by UCL students to promote positive discussion focusing on the socio-economic opportunity in Africa to drive meaningful action to harness Africa's potential.
Our theme for 2020 is 'Africa 2050: Investing in Africa'. According to PwC's 'The World in 2050' report, "six of the seven largest economies in the world are projected to be emerging economies in 2050" - none of which are African countries.
However, through highlighting opportunities for investment in Africa, we hope to share both innovative and practical methods to help overcome the obstacles in her way.
