About CAFI Events

Bringing together the world’s leading Government and business leaders, policymakers, and experts.

Each year, CAFI hosts a series of exclusive meetings for the leaders setting the global business and government agenda. Building upon CAFI’s cutting-edge vision and unrivalled power to convene top Government and Business Leaders, CEOs, policymakers, and experts, CAFI events are executed at the highest level of the quality spectrum. They are renowned for innovative formats, peer-level interaction across industries, and strategic focus on issues that affect Africa and Africans.

The Commonwealth Africa Initiative has been at the vanguard of promoting the Socio Economic interest of Africa in the Commonwealth, actively participating in the growth story of Africa, CAFI looks to address a key lacuna, that of the lack of a singular African led platform that brings together commonwealth Africa leaders, leading trend setters, policy influences of industry, and other stakeholders to discuss all that is relevant to Africa in the Commonwealth. Founded to empower multiple industries and segments by sharing critical knowledge and raising advocacy through strategic conferences and summits, CAFIEvents strives to create a socio-political and business ecosystem that is conducive to bringing about the development required in Africa. Our events are not just the sole inflection point of receiving critical information and dialogue, but also forging relationships at a global level.

Our Vision:

We envision creating knowledge and dialogue platforms across that would connect, engage, and empower Africans and Commonwealth citizens to define their future, develop growth opportunities and address problems facing their respective communities.

Our Objective:

CAFIEvents strives to respond to Africa’s Challenges, promote Africa’s Development and channel global business intelligence in the interest of Africa through summits and conferences in overarching lectures, hands-on workshops, panels, roundtables and case studies. The forums would ensure senior decision makers are equipped with information to respond to challenges they face globally.
