“ex Africa semper aliquid novi” 

– Gaius Plinius Secundus

Part Two of the King & Spalding Africa Webinar Series will specifically focus on development finance, private credit and strategic partnerships in Africa, and will conclude with a broadly themed General Counsel Forum.

Amidst the unprecedented and multifaceted challenges created by the coronavirus pandemic, this series offers a unique perspective from key business leaders from the private sector and development finance institutions, as well as from legal and academic professionals.
