Casablanca, networking capital of Africa for 2 days

With more than 50 countries represented, including 40 Africans, the Choiseul Africa Business Forum will be a real accelerator of inter- and intra-continental synergies, thanks to a fertile business climate.

It is from this conviction that the ambition of the Choiseul Africa Business Forum was born, and it is on the strength of this observation that we seek each year to strengthen all the fields of value creation in Africa”, indicates Pascal Lorot, President of the Institut Choiseul.
