Session 3: The Africa CEO Dialogue Series | Economic Recovery - Creating Value through Public-Private Partnerships | 1st October 2020



You are cordially invited to the third session of the virtual four-part Africa CEO Dialogue Series co-hosted by Strathmore University Business School and the Shared Value Africa Initiative. The theme is Economic Recovery – Creating Value through Public-Private Partnerships.

Public-Private Partnerships is crucial to the economic recovery of our continent. Given the impact of COVID-19, it is evident that the private sector is not only a key stakeholder in development but also an indispensable anchor. We will look at Public-Private partnerships as the most viable policy instruments for building innovation capabilities of the private sector and hence enhance job creation and economic recovery.

The COVID-19 pandemic has shown how the private sector is inextricably linked to the public sector and ultimately to society. The discussion will investigate the need for governments to develop the private sector and make them competitive in the global economy. We will also look at what the private sector needs to do for value creation; be innovative and competitive.


Come listen to CEOs and industry leaders in Africa as we discuss value creation through Public-Private Partnerships.

Our speakers for this session will be:

Africa has specific needs that cannot be addressed from the outside in; there is a real need for African-driven solutions to African problems, and Shared Value is the key. For the innovative, forward-thinking business, real growth opportunities can be found in addressing social challenges.

The Shared Value Africa Initiative aims to bring together businesses and business communities from across Africa with a common purpose: to build the African economy.

Through partnerships with a variety of stakeholder groups, including regional and national corporations, non-profits, multi-and bilateral development agencies, and foundations, the SVAI is busy creating Africa’s most powerful business network.
