About this Event

The Global Business Roundtable (GBR) is hosting its 10th Annual World Congress for Trade and Investment.

The 10th GBR World Congress aims to provide an unparalleled global platform where leaders and decision makers from all sectors address ways in which global economic growth and equitable distribution of wealth and resources can occur.

Central to the high-level discussions is Africa’s positioning and participation, which will effectively advance the economic development agenda of the continent. The diverse and content-rich programme caters for big corporates, public sector, SMMEs, technical and financial partners wishing to explore trade and investment opportunities through various types of partnership models including, Public Private Partnerships (PPPs) and entrepreneurs seeking finance for their projects. The event aims to attract representatives from over 100+ nations, for meaningful dialogue through high-level plenary sessions.

Plenary sessions are designed to bring diverse perspectives and practical solutions to the issues raised by industry, government and private sector representatives.

The event will include a fully-fledged exhibition and trade fair where government, private sector, development financiers, state owned entities, trade and investment agencies, chambers of commerce, small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and other parties of interest, can showcase and demonstrate their goods, cutting-edge products and services to a global audience.
