World Economic Forum on Africa 2014

This publication looks at the just concluded World Economic Forum on Africa 2014 and how to use taxation as an enabler to attract and retain investment, forge inclusive growth and create jobs. 

Congratulations to Nigeria and Nigerians for the successful hosting of the 24th World Economic Forum on Africa. According to Rosler Philipp, Managing Director of the World Economic Forum, the event is one of their best regional forums ever. Apart from being incident free, the level of attendance and active participation by political leaders and business executives was impressive. A number of resolutions were reached, business deals signed, initiatives launched and promises made. In all ramifications, the forum can be adjudged as very successful but we now need to build on the momentum and ensure to implement the recommendations.
