The Annual Banking & Finance Conference 2017
THEME : "Making Financial Inclusion a Reality in Africa: Connecting people to Banking & Financial Service" couldn’t be timelier.

The Africa Insurance & Reinsurance Conference, a regionally focused event now in its 7th edition has steadily become a gateway for the global and regional investors to engage local leaders as they seek ways to increase insurance penetration in the continent.
THEME : “Road Map for Insurance Inclusion and Penetration" . Africa continues to offer significant potential for future investment. Sustainable economic expansion and demographic transformation are making the insurance market more attractive, particularly in Sub-Saharan Africa. As the industry rides the wave of growth in this second fastest growing region in the World, the scale of opportunity is compelling. Low market penetration is giving way to rising consumer demand and new technologies. In this shifting landscape, organic growth is a greater priority than mergers and acquisitions (M&A) or new products.
Venue Will Be Confirmed
THEME : CLOSING THE 'PRODUCTIVITY GAP'
Africa’s economic future depends on success in agriculture, which in turn depends on empowering famers (especially smallholder farmers (with less than two hectares) - who constitute about 80% of all farms) - to increase productivity by adopting modern farming methods. However, success in agriculture which in turn ensures food security can be a daunting task. There are myriad factors and interrelated parts that, in combination, make food security a complex challenge.
This 2 day conference will kick start discussions addressing the needs of a dynamic food security program. Climate change, agri inputs, water scarcity, land rights, fairer agricultural policies, technological developments- all of these issues and more will be addressed as we seek ways to infinitely maximize the crop yields on existing resources in- face of ever-decreasing farm size due to land subdivision as Africa's population grows. The Exhibition will run alongside the event and will show case latest technologies and other innovative products and solutions.
Transforming the sector from subsistence-based agriculture to commercial agriculture for smallholder farmers presents huge economic opportunities.
