The continent’s two biggest economies are pivotal to the financing of their own economies and the wider development of Africa. The countries are home to Africa’s biggest and rapidly expanding banks. Who are they and what issues are they dealing with in this rapidly growing continent as they grapple with the disruption of technology and changing legislative requirements. Top bankers from both countries and others in the financial services and related sectors will gather in Johannesburg for two days of interactive, exciting and insightful debates and presentations.
