WHEF 2017@Nairobi Africa: Growing Business, Transforming Lives

Africa has 10 of the 20 fastest growing economies in the world due to an enabling environment of political stability, good economic management, demographic dividend and rapid regional integration. Kenya is the gateway to Eastern, Central and Southern Africa, and Nairobi is fast emerging as a global leader in the financial services sector especially in mobile payments. Africa is urbanizing rapidly and regards the Hindu civilization as a natural partner, offering opportunities in consumer goods, property and infrastructure development, agribusiness, information technology etc.

The WHEF journey began in 2012 at Hong Kong, followed by successful annual forums in Bangkok 2013, New Delhi 2014, London 2015, Los Angeles 2016 and several regional forums along the way.
