Thank you again for the organization of the conference. It was very interesting for us, good discussions and great speakers.
PIAFRICA 2017 was very useful from the networking point of view and the issues discussed were critical issues cutting across the board. The event helped me to realise the problems I am dealing with are common problems and hopefully we will find a common solution at the conference to ease doing the business.
Excellent composition of speakers.
Thank you for the exposure. Looking forward to more similar events.
Pooling together the various high profiled intellectual resources in the space of social security across the continent to discuss investment topical issues has inspired a shift in thinking on the approach to this subject. Well done AME Trade.
It was excellent.
