The first Africa Digital Finance Summit will be held from May 24 to May 26 at the Sandston convention center in South Africa.
The theme of the three-day conference is “The Future of Finance in Africa: Our Path to a New Africa.
At the Summit, there will be a thought-leadership conference with governments, central banks from all over Africa, well-known executives from global Fintech operators, start-ups, professionals, and decision-makers from the financial, economic, technology, fintech, and blockchain industries to talk about and plan the future of finance in Africa.
The Summit will feature over 70 keynote speakers from over 40 countries, all eager and well-prepared to start discussions about the future of banking in Africa.
About 30 companies are sponsoring the conference, and more than 2500 people have signed up to go.
This annual Summit, which takes place in the context of the African Free Trade Agreement, is driving the conversation about redefining value exchange for Africans and getting people to use decentralized finance in their businesses and everyday life.
“Africa is the last frontier of unlimited promise,” said H.E. Uhuru Kenyatta. The goal of this Summit is to make Africa the place where innovative digital finance solutions will be found and used successfully.
Ms. Mary Njoki, CEO and M.D. of Glasshouse PR, says about how important it is for Africa to be at the forefront of the digital revolution, “This is a summit for bold, visionary leaders who are willing to disrupt as much as they are willing to create, who know what to give up as well as what they expect to gain.
Africa is at the center of the discussion about digital finance because it has quickly adopted digital solutions.
The digital space has decentralized many services that can be accessed from everywhere, and financial services are no exception. That means that we may conduct global transactions from the comfort of our own homes with the click of a button.
As Africa develops, the number of people who use the digital economy is growing quickly, and Ms. Njoki said it was time to bring the conversation to Africa.
The ADFS will look at all of the issues that affect financial technology innovations in Africa, as well as the policies and laws that will make it easier for these technologies to be used in the long run.
As well as the empowerment of current and future generations, the deployment of blockchain and associated technologies throughout Africa, the future of finance in Africa, and how African governments and the business sector may capitalize on the convergence of these technologies.
