Les leaders du monde économique et politique se réuniront fin août 2015 à Libreville pour définir une feuille de route qui sera élaborée à travers des sessions de travail interactives.
Le New Forum AFRICA 2015 capitalisera sur les résultats des précédentes éditions afin de se concentrer sur les mesures concrètes qui permettront d’amener la transformation de l’Afrique à sa prochaine étape de développement.

Le New York Forum AFRICA est le seul sommet économique panafricain à se tenir en Afrique en 2015.

Le NYFA 2015 se tiendra conjointement avec une autre initiative majeure : la première édition de la Climate South Initiative (CSI), organisée le 29 août à Libreville afin de définir le rôle des pays du Sud dans la lutte contre le réchauffement climatique et de trouver des solutions concrètes afin de préparer la COP21 prévue à Paris en décembre 2015.


Traditionnel point de rencontre du NYFA, la Marketplace permet d’organiser des réunions entre participants et exposants du secteur privé et public. La réussite de notre session inaugurale Money Talks au NYFA 2014, durant laquelle un inventeur a bénéficié en direct de l’engagement d’un investisseur, sera élargie en 2015 pour accueillir un Village de l’innovation. À cette occasion, plusieurs jeunes pousses africaines, minutieusement sélectionnées, seront successivement invitées à présenter aux participants de la Marketplace une invention capable d’induire un réel changement.
