In demonstrating its willingness to align with organizations that advance economic growth on the African continent, Botho University sponsored and hosted the Conversation with Africa 2020 press and stakeholder briefing.
Hosted by The Business Kraal in collaboration with Business Botswana, the event is planned to run for three days from 13 to 15 May 2020. It has the theme “Implementing the African Continental Free Trade Area Agreement” and also the same event will see the launch of the Nigerian chapter of Conversation with Africa.
The organizers are calling on potential partners and sponsors that wish to be associated with this event to come forward.
This year sees the second edition of an annual event that gathers various development partners.
The one-day inaugural event was successfully held in April last year in the capital city of Gaborone, Botswana. Participants included Ambassadors, High Commissioners, Chief Executives from Parastatals, Senior Government officials in Botswana and the region of SADC, local, regional and global business people.
A report from the first edition of the event has been compiled by Business Botswana and The Business Kraal’s content team and is being shared with stakeholders, development partners, Embassies, amongst others. Those that are interested to receive it should contact the Business Botswana and The Business Kraal with a request for a copy.
Delegates exchanged and explored on pertinent issues around economic growth in Africa under the theme: Intra Africa Trade. The theme is becoming more important as African member countries press for businesses operators on the continent to trade among each other.
Economic experts on Africa and other proponents of African integration believe that the future of our continent should be anchored in a strong foundation on trade and free movement of people among the continent’s countries.
Sharing in this dream is Botho University’s online and campus-based learning programmes across Africa, whose impact is already being felt in nurturing the continent’s future corporate leaders and entrepreneurs.
The growing Botswana headquartered university has this year launched distance learning programmes in Nigeria (West Africa) and however, the online courses can be accessed from anywhere in Africa and even outside the continent.
Five different operational campuses are in Botswana (Gaborone and Francistown), Lesotho (Maseru), Namibia (Windhoek) and Eswatini (Mbabane).
