South Sudan Vice-President to attend Business and Security Forum

The Vice-President of South Sudan, HE Dr Riek Machar, will join senior ministers from Kenya and other African countries at the forthcoming Africa Forum on Business and Security, it was announced on Monday, July 30th.

Dr Machar has been a key figure in developing the fledgling economy of the world’s newest state since it attained independence from Sudan just over a year ago.

At the Africa Forum on Business and Security, which will be held at Nairobi’s Laico Regency Hotel on September 13th and 14th, 2012, Dr Machar and other statesmen will rub shoulders with business leaders, investors, security experts and decision-makers from all over Africa and beyond.

“The Africa Forum on Business and Security is taking place at a very interesting and important time for Africa,” says Peris Wanjiru of conference organisers ICWE. “Many African economies are growing at six or seven per cent a year. The one thing that can hold us back now is a failure to address the security challenges that confront us. This ground breaking, pan-African dialogue between the public and private sectors will make a real difference.”

The conference will focus on dealing with persistent problems, attracting investors, protecting vulnerable sectors and securing growth. It will also consider the immense opportunities for African business in delivering security, investment, skills and jobs.

Businesses wanting to take part in the Forum should contact Anna Shigwedha at for more information.
