Liberian President Weah to attend African CEO Forum

President George Weah

The election of George Weah as President of Liberia at the end of December 2017 raises tremendous hopes for the country’s economic re-emergence.

This is an immense challenge and coupled with the expectations of Liberia’s young population it provides strong motivation for President Weah to meet with investors at the AFRICA CEO FORUM, which is scheduled for March 26 to 27 in Abidjan, the Ivory Coast.

Improving the business climate, upgrading basic infrastructure, restructuring health and education systems, flagship measures for young people, especially through sport – President Weah will share his strategy for laying the groundwork for Liberia’s economic transformation with over 1,200 business leaders, investors and decision-makers.

One of the continent’s youngest presidents, he will also recount his own unusual and inspiring life story: from the slums of Monrovia to the presidency of Liberia and, en route, Europe’s most famous football clubs.

President Weah joins the growing list of African presidents who have attended previous editions of the Forum – those of Ghana, Côte d’Ivoire and Senegal, reaffirming the AFRICA CEO FORUM’s mission of being the most influential annual forum for public-private dialogue on the continent.
