PREVIEW

AFRICA EMPLOYERS CONFERENCE

Africa is a continent endowed with large quantities of natural resources, yet her people continue to languish in poverty. Why this contradiction? How can a people in a rich land languish in poverty, diseases and illiteracy for decades? What should the current generation do to change this narrative in their lifetime?

We believe that giving quality employment to our people is the way out of poverty. Economic growth reaches most people through employment income. For the poor and vulnerable, jobs is the main way to improve their standard of living and escape poverty. Evidence shows that when people get jobs or can increase their earnings, their families can escape poverty. Conversely, when people lose jobs or earnings, households can fall into poverty. Creating more better and inclusive jobs is therefore central to the development agenda.

Africa desires that opportunities created within its borders be harnessed for the benefit of the people and enterprises of Africa. That is why you hear of bold initiatives like: buy Africa, build Africa; calls to stop exporting raw materials and unprocessed commodities out of Africa; voices calling for transforming the informal enterprises and ventures into established formal business; demands for strengthening and enforcing patent laws and property rights; desire to make free movement of persons, services, goods, capital and labour within Africa a reality and not just a talk and ink on paper; need to promote National dialogues and Social dialogue on challenges we face; and a call to Empower the Women in Africa. The Africa Employers Conference seeks to address these issues.

Topics for discussion

The discussions at the conference will be centered on the theme, “Shaping the Future of Work and Enterprises in Africa.” These interactions will be aimed at generating fresh resolve and inspiration and generating frameworks for our role as employers, employers associations and business leaders now and in future.
