Business Leaders Series: East Africa set for June 16

Hogan Lovells, in partnership with African Business, are to hold the second webinar in our Business Leaders Series taking place on Wednesday, June 16 2021.

The organisers note that few regions in the world excite as much attention as East Africa. Driven by a resurgent Kenyan economy, the promise of economic liberalisation in Ethiopia and the possibility of vast oil production in Uganda, investors are flocking to the region in the hope of taking advantage of bold new opportunities.

Despite the pandemic, the World Bank has projected that East Africa will remain the continent’s fastest-growing region in 2021, alongside Southern Africa, with a growth of 2.7%. This demonstrates the region’s economic resilience and diversification. 

The East Africa regional event will explore the new investment opportunities in the Agriculture sector in Eastern Africa, discuss the recent telecom liberalisation efforts in Ethiopia and provide crucial insights into the new wave of investments in critical technology and data infrastructure in the region.
