I was pleasantly surprised to see for the first time that Africa was represented in force at an Asian conference with a sophisticated range of government ministers, financial professionals, and consultants from the continent showing Asia that the African talent pool is deep, polished, knowledgable and ready to do business. The insiders view and voice of Africa is really what make this conference something special."
