Brazil-Africa Leadership Forum 2013

This is Africa and Financial Times Live are delighted to invite you to attend the second annual Brazil-Africa Leadership Forum which will take place at the Hilton Sandton in Johannesburg, South Africa on Wednesday 27 November.

The global shift of political and economic power from developed markets to the major growth markets of Asia, Latin America and Africa is profoundly reshaping international affairs. As the world's fifth largest economy, and a member of the BRIC country grouping, Brazil finds itself at the forefront of this change.

As the global economy shifts, and both Brazil and Africa take on increasingly important international roles, this one day summit will provide a platform for constructive dialogue on how to deepen the relationship between the two regions. 

The speaker line up promises provocative and insightful discussions on those confirmed to date include:

  • Seth Adjei-Bahh, President, Ghana National Chamber of Commerce and Industry
  • David Graham, Managing Director, Trade Projects
  • Erich Schaitza, Coordinator of Embrapa Africa Ghana, Embrapa
  • Gilson Pinesso, Director, Pinesso Group
