SWIFT African Regional Conference 2014

Report of event


A packed exhibition hall with 15 solution providers offered additional opportunities for delegates to find out what is on offer across their continent.

In the welcome address, Gottfried Leibbrandt, Chief Executive, SWIFT, stressed the importance of Africa to SWIFT and of SWIFT’s unique role in African financial markets. “This is our21st ARC event, which like SWIFT itself, is I think proving a unique platform for the community in Africa. SWIFT is at the heart of the financial community in Africa. It is a particularly opportune time to be here, as we are doing more and more in Africa, and you are doing more with us. African growth is spectacular – 63% over the last four years – far outpacing overall message growth on SWIFT. This reflects the huge and fundamental shift transforming the world around us from west to east, from north to south. That is why we are growing our presence here.”
