Point saillant:

Contrairement aux années antérieures, l’année 2020 connait sur le plan mondial une révolution du paysage social, économique et politique du fait de la pandémie de la COVID-19. La présente édition de la table ronde met l’accent sur ce que cela implique pour l’Afrique. Sous la modération de Dr Robert Besseling, d’EXX Africa, nous envisageons l’avenir en évaluant les perspectives de croissance dans les mois à venir.

Les agences de notation jouent un rôle très important pour déterminer les perspectives de nombreux pays africains. La session abordera également les questions actuelles et thématiques relatives aux notations et à Ia remise de dette – Les tendances en Afrique reflèteront-elles celles du monde entier et quel rôle l’Initiative de Suspension du Service de la Dette (DSSI) pourrait-elle jouer dans les décisions de notation? Les perspectives sont-elles empreintes d’optimisme, de pessimisme ou de réalisme? David Rogovic, Vice-Président, Analyste Principal, du Groupe Risque Souverain chez Moody’s Investors Service, examinera ces questions et bien d’autres.

Pour y répondre, nous avons invité quatre pays africains – le Ghana, le Sénégal, le Togo et l’Ouganda. Le ministre sénégalais de l’Economie, du Plan et de la Coopération, S.E. M Amadou HOTT, lancera les activités de cette année. Salué par la communauté internationale pour son succès dans la gestion des impacts sanitaires de la pandémie, le Sénégal constitue un modèle pour le reste du continent. S.E.M Hott apportera de lumière sur les plans de croissance du Sénégal dans le cadre de son positionnement post-COVID.

Nous espérons que vous nous rejoindrez pour une discussion enrichissante sur les risques principalement posés par la pandémie, pour clôturer l’année et faire le point sur la situation en Afrique.




7th Annual Investor Roundtable (Virtual) on Africa’s Investments & Trade Risks

Date: Tuesday, 1 December 2020

Theme: Prospects for Africa beyond COVID-19

Registration Link:

Program: Event program


In a year like no other, the COVID-19 pandemic is changing the social, economic and political landscape globally. In this edition of the Roundtable, we focus on what this means for Africa. With expert moderation provided by Dr. Robert Besseling of EXX Africa, we take a future perspective by looking at the prospects for growth in the coming months.

Ratings agencies play an outsized role in determining the prospects for many African countries. The session will also address current and topical questions related to ratings and debt forgiveness – Will trends in Africa mirror those around the world and what role could the Debt Service Suspension Initiative (DSSI) play in the ratings decisions? Is the outlook one of Optimism, Pessimism or Realism? David Rogovic, Vice President – Senior Analyst, Sovereign Risk Group at Moody’s Investors Service will address these questions and more.

In response, we have invited four African countries – Ghana, Senegal, Togo and Uganda to give their take on these issues. Senegal’s Minister of Economy, Planning and Cooperation, H.E. Amadou Hott, will kick off this year’s programme. Lauded by the international community for its successful handling of the pandemic, Senegal is in many ways a beacon for the rest of the continent and H.E. Hott will shed some light on Senegal’s plans for future growth as they move into a post-COVID positioning.

We hope you will join us for an illuminating discussion on the risks primarily posed by the pandemic, that may serve as a year-end wrap-up and a future look at the state of play in Africa!
