Nitty gritties of the upcoming EA investment forum

The Global Investing Committee of the New York Society of Security Analysts (NYSSA), in partnership with the Association of New Generation of Leaders for Africa (AngelAfrica), would like to invite you to the East Africa Investment Forum which aims to provide a platform for governments, private companies, and financial institutions to showcase investment opportunities in East Africa.

The regional block called the East African Community (EAC), is made up of Burundi, Rwanda, Uganda, Kenya, and Tanzania, countries covering 701,028 sq. miles that represent a market of 125 Million people and a combined GDP of US $104.2 billion.

Attendees will hear from among others, government officials, investment agencies, directors of local and multinational financial institutions, and emerging market fund managers and private equity benefactors.

They will learn what leading experts have to say about the Region's economic outlook, its market potential and why this is the right time to venture into this virgin economy. Most importantly, they will share their proven strategies and solutions that are making their ventures succeed in East Africa.
