The AR-CSR™ provides a platform which brings business leaders, experts and practitioners together to engage on issues of sustainability, social responsibility and sustainable development within Africa. As a foremost industry flagship event, it continues to attract the crème of Africa’s leading figures and decision makers in order to sustain best practices on sustainable development. The quality of the resource persons and participants, satisfactory feedback, intellectual exchanges, learning experiences – both for personal development and corporate strategy – makes this an important event in the African Business Calendar.

The 2014 edition will examine role of financial inclusion as a fundamental sustainability strategy for African economies beyond being treated as a purely economic challenge. With emphasis on access to finance and financial literacy as determining factors for poverty alleviation, speakers will highlight how inclusion fosters economic sustainability and emphasizes its inherent social benefit in today’s fast-changing global landscape.

Speakers will interrogate the intersection where financial inclusion fosters economic sustainability and enhances societal benefit and try to identify what is missing:

  1. The pooling of the most available heap of investable funds possible from all nooks and crannies of the economy and;
  2. Channeling the pooled funds to attractive production activities, particularly those of small-to-medium size enterprises which are established as the main engines of economic growth and job creation across countries, thus enhancing and increasing societal growth.

The AR-CSR™ features the following activities: CEO Roundtable, Conference, Sustainable Solutions Showcase, AR-CSR™ Gala, High-Level Networking Cocktails and Eco Tourism.
