The meeting aims to move leaders to change the way they approach development planning by designing policies that allow everyone to benefit from economic growth and brings together all of the Forum communities that are active in the region during the year.

The meeting’s other priority is to help Africa prepare for the huge changes the world is about to experience as a result of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

The host country, South Africa, the only African G20 economy – is championing reforms to eradicate extreme poverty and promote shared growth nationally, regionally and globally.

The host city, Durban, which has the busiest industrial port in sub-Saharan Africa, offers insights to participants on how trade in regionally manufactured goods can strengthen economic resilience and create jobs.
