The leading Pan African media relations and communications firm, African Media Agency (AMA), has forged an alliance with the African Leadership UK, to host the 3rd Africa Summit in London on 26th July 2019.
The Africa Summit is an annual program and premier of the African Leadership magazine, which gathers business and political leaders as well as key stakeholders in one room to connect with one another; celebrate entrepreneurship, innovation and development in the continent; and explore diverse thoughts and views on issues relating to the social, economic and environmental sustainability of Africa.
Speaking on the partnership, Ken Giami the African Leadership magazine CEO, noted that this year’s summit is expected to be more successful. “AMA partnership in the summit was a real shot in the arm for the summit. Not only will they bring on board media expertise but will also help steer our agenda to its peak. This year’s summit theme, Intra-African Trade: Beyond Rhetoric and Political Commitment’s, is totally in line with what AMA strives for.”
Over the years African countries have adopted a number of Regional Trade Agreements (RTAs) with the aim of promoting trade among themselves, such as the Right to Residence and Right to Establishment, the Single African Air Transport Market (SAATM) and Protocol on Free Movement of Persons, as well as the landmark Africa Continental Free Trade Agreement (AfCFTA, a landmark agreement which the UN Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) estimates will boost intra-Africa trade by 52.3%.
The “Policymakers’ Roundtable Session on Intra-Regional Trade” is a High-level for key domestic and international policymakers across AU member states and the International Development Institutions, as well as policymakers from United States, Europe, and Asia to engage in a constructive and candid dialogue on contemporary developments on intra-Africa trade.
The collaboration positions AMA as the official media partner for this noble event. AMA will use its network and vast skills to promote the visibility of the event. “As an authoritative voice in the African media landscape, we are honored to be part of this summit. Positive African narrative is at the core of our business and we will always endeavor to make sure that we are part of the voice for the positive transformation and development of the continent,” noted Eloine Barry, African Media Agency’s founder, and CEO.
Previous editions of the noble summit have attracted over 250 leaders from across the United Kingdom, Africa and the United States, 2019 edition promises to be even bigger.
