Following the phenomenal success of the 2015 Global African Investment Summit, TGAIS is set to return to London for its 3rd consecutive year in November 2016.
TGAIS gathers together over 1,000 investors that control in excess of $400bn in funds and has the patronage and support of multiple African heads of state, the UK government and the business elite of Africa.
