WHY ADDIS

ADDIS ABABA
ADDIS ABABA

The selection of the AFTS 2019 Africa host city was not an easy one,with several major tech hubs from across the continent vying for the honor. Ultimately, however, the AFTS advisory board unanimously selected Ethiopia’s vibrant capital, Addis Ababa.

The reason is clear. Africa’s fastest growing economy and the continent’s second most populous country is at the precipice of unprecedented change. Thanks to the extensive infrastructure investment over the last two decades, an ambitious structural reform agenda, partial privatization of the national telecommunications industry and the opening for two new providers,imminent liberalization in the financial sector, and a clear embrace of innovation as an economic driver, Ethiopia presents unparalleled opportunities for investment, entrepreneurship, and innovation in fintech.

The AFTS Addis presents a unique opportunity for stakeholders from around the world and from within Ethiopia to help shape an evolving fintech policy landscape, source new and exciting partners and opportunities, and gain first-mover advantage in Africa’s most dynamic economy.
