The GHI Big Debate: No more tears for Africa – How do we stop protectionism, fragmentation and politics led by self-interest scuppering a once in a lifetime aviation growth opportunity for Africa?

09:35 - 11:00

With plans for a single African sky stalling and the continent flattering to deceive against buoyant growth forecasts, GHI will task key aviation leaders with going back to the drawing board on a pan-African aviation growth blueprint. The session will explore why good intentions for African aviation keep going astray, reimagine airline:GSP relationships and look at the role of leadership and culture change in enabling a brighter future. This interactive session will task delegates with coming up with some key enablers for change and deliver the recommendations to the African Union, the organisation behind the Single African Air Transport Market Agreement.
