Horasis and the office of the former president announced today that former president Ernest Bai Koroma will attend the 2020 Horasis Global Meeting which takes place in Cascais, Portugal over 28-31 March.
“I found President Koroma’s presence during the 2019 meeting and his contribution extremely valuable to the overall objectives of Horasis. Therefore I am here to personally invite him to next year’s meeting and to request for his recommendation of other African political and private sector leaders”, said Frank-Jurgen Richter, Chairman of Horasis and formerly director of the World Economic Forum, during a visit to the former president.
The 2020 Horasis Global Meeting is the world’s largest gathering of business and government leaders, offering an ideal platform to explore and foster cooperation, impact investing, and sustainable growth across the world.
The former president will join selected world leaders, including several heads of governments and key ministers, to discuss the theme “Innovating Decisive Leadership through Times of Disruption”.
The participants are poised to discuss potential solutions and to propose pathways that lead to sustainable leadership on global and local levels. For instance, “what does it take to be a responsible and effective leader in politics, business and society?”
A press release from the office of the former president quoted the statesman to have said: “I am very pleased to have received the chairman of Horasis in Sierra Leone; we had very fruitful discussions on our partnership going forward. Indeed I believe Horasis offers a very unique and strategic platform which African leaders, both in the public and private sectors, should utilize in advancing their socio-economic development goals”.
