Sall said the forum themed “Youth, Trade, and Development”, would feature a host of high-level speakers in plenaries and side events from June 10 to 13 at the Sharm El Sheikh International Congress Center.

Prof. Benedict Oramah, the President of Afreximbank, said recognition of the critical role that Africa’s evolving demographics would play in the coming decades, AAM2020 would also focus on the theme.
“We will assess the challenges and opportunities presented by Africa as the world’s youngest continent and home to 90 percent of the global youth market, with 19 of the world’s 20 youngest countries.
“We will explore how Africa can create dividends from this potential huge advantage, how we should educate our young, develop the most relevant training programs for them, and what Africa should be doing right now,” he said.
