With the theme “Natural Resources: Solutions to Economic Growth”, the Brazil Africa Forum arrives in its 8th edition establishing itself as one of the main events for the strengthening of relations between Brazil and the African continent. During November 3rd and 4th, at the Sheraton WTC, in São Paulo, representatives of governments, the private sector, academia, and potential investors will exchange experiences, discuss valuable opportunities and promote knowledge.
Among the discussions, the Brazil Africa 2020 Forum aims to present business opportunities that exist for Brazil on the African continent and vice versa. The debates will focus on topics such as biodiversity, renewable energy, maritime resources, among others.
“Brazil and the countries of the African continent are very privileged in terms of natural resources, possessing some of the most valuable ecosystems, forests, and watercourses on the planet. This way, a dialogue on this issue is imperative, and this is what the Brazil Africa Forum 2020 will address. The connections that will be created at the event have the potential to benefit millions of lives, both in Brazil and in African countries,” says João Bosco Monte, President of the Brazil Africa Institute.
Among the names already confirmed as speakers are Benedict Oramah, President of Afreximbank, Agnes Kalibata, President of the Alliance for the Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA, in English) and Roberto Rodrigues, Coordinator of the FGV-EESP Agribusiness Center and Special Ambassador of FAO for Cooperativism.
