Details

The Global Business Roundtable (GBR) is a global professional networking organization, with a mandate to develop people holistically. GBR focuses on the following key areas of human development: spiritual development (which we believe is a foundation for ethical behavior and consciousness); business and financial development (including trade and investment); family and society issues; science and technology; education and intellectual development; sports, arts and culture; leadership, governance and politics, as well as media and communications.

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 multi-national 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 will also highlight the need and importance of intra-regional trade on the continent, as well as a need for reviewing present multilateral agreements that are more responsive to the needs of the continent.

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 formulate practical solutions to the issues raised by industry, government and private sector representatives.
