He therefore invited African businessmen “to be all Dangote, each in his field for the benefit of Africa”.

Apollinaire Joachim Kyélem de Tambèla stressed that “the private sector is the engine of the economy and is convinced that Africans can “find solutions for Africa and for Africans”. “What is needed may be commitment, patriotism and leadership,” he recommended.

According to the representative of the director of the Vista Bank group and sponsor of this 7th edition of Africallia Yassin Bayo, the multisector business development forum "has become (today) an ideal framework for establishing business partnerships not to be missed. ".

She maintained that "thanks to the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Burkina Faso and its partners, Africallia has become an unmissable meeting place for players in the African business world".

This is why the director of Vista Bank Simon Tiemtoré did not hesitate to associate his image and that of his group with the event, underlined Ms. Bayo.

She therefore urged Burkinabè businessmen and women "to seize this opportunity to conclude solid and lasting business partnerships with men and women from various countries of the world".

The President of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Burkina Faso Mahamadi Savadogo wished him that these two days of the Africallia forum "will be a strong moment of exchanges and sharing crowned by mutually advantageous quality partnerships".

The opening ceremony was marked by the signing of cooperation agreements between the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Burkina Faso and four other sister chambers of commerce.

These are the Chamber of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Handicrafts of Cameroon, the Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Handicrafts of Guinea, the Chamber of Commerce, Industry, Agriculture and Services of Guinea Bissau and the Chamber of Commerce of the Democratic Republic of Congo.
