The Aspen Ministers Forum (AMF), in partnership with the OCP Group, will gather for its 23rd session in Marrakesh, Morocco. This meeting will bring together over twenty-five former foreign ministers and twenty renowned experts from around the world.

This AMF session will revolve around the topic of, “Africa Rising: Trends, Challenges, and Opportunities.” Our group will explore political, economic, and security trends across the continent, focusing on how countries are grappling with transnational challenges including migration, climate change, food security, growing populations and violent extremism. We will also examine the role of external powers, including China, in the next phase of Africa’s development. At the conclusion of our discussions, we will once again aim to produce concrete recommendations for today’s policymakers.
