The TROPICS BUSINESS SUMMIT is a unique opportunity for your organization to connect with 250+ Speakers, Panelists and Investors and a global audience close to 500,000 digital attendees in Africa and beyond in a variety of government and private sectors. The organizing committee is committed to engaging with delegates through an energizing, result-oriented and informative program of Speakers, Panelists and facilitating networking and business opportunities for Sponsors and Partners through an interactive exhibition and a dynamic program of business-focused and social activities. Delegates include investment professionals and associated professions, heads of governments, embassies, business leaders, institutional partners and investors, representatives of public authorities, media and thought leaders. Over the past 25 years the number of workers living in extreme poverty has declined dramatically, despite the long-lasting impact of the economic crisis of 2008/2009. In developing countries, the middle class now makes up more than 34 percent of total employment – a number that has almost tripled between 1991 and 2015.However, as the global economy continues to recover we are seeing slower growth, widening inequalities and employment that is not expanding fast enough to keep up with the growing labour force.
