As a Patronage partner, FSACCI is pleased to invite its CEOs to participate to the sixth edition of the Ambrosetti Summit in Johannesburg, entitled “Southern Africa Europe CEO Dialogue”, taking place at the Maslow Hotel in Sandton on 29-30 October 2019.

The Summit, reserved to CEOs coming from Europe and Africa, will address issues of primary importance for the development of socio-economic, political and cultural relations not only between Italy and South Africa, but also among other EU and SADC countries.

Thanks to the new multilateral format, the Summit will provide participants with the necessary tools to take advantage of the numerous business opportunities existing in Southern Africa, a region of great growth prospects and ready to welcome new investments from Italy and Europe, above all in view of the development of regional value chains as well as the strengthening of SADC’s inter-connectivity and the integration of its economies.

As the relevant amount of FDIs demonstrates, the region is already improving its attractiveness: in 2018, the total FDI inflow reached over $4,2 Bn.

Thanks to the high level of the participants and to the quality of its contents, the Southern Africa Europe CEO Dialogue is the ideal platform to start together this path of growth. Furthermore, the Summit will provide African companies with the opportunity to encounter European companies and stakeholders, offering a unique occasion to build fruitful relations to expand their activities in Europe.


FSACCI Members benefit from a 15% discount on the Forum's participation fees. In order to secure this preferential rate, do not forget to specifiy that you have been 'Invited by: FSACCI' on your registration form.
