China-Africa Investment Forum (CAIF), launched in 2015, works to connect Chinese business leaders with African leaders from business and government.

Once a year, over 150 business leaders from China and Africa present their specific commercial opportunities with their African counterparts and discuss practical ways to build beneficial partnerships.

Ultimately, we work towards establishing investment, trade and technology partnerships.

CAIF is endorsed by King Mohammed VI of Morocco and organised in collaboration with Mr Moulay Hafid Elalamy.

CAIF is organised by the Sino-International Entrepreneurs Federation (SIEF), a non-profit, non-partisan organisation incorporated in Switzerland and headquartered in Beijing.


The titles of the participants are those held at the time of their attendance. Listed alphabetically.


CAIF brings together senior leaders in trusted environments and creates highly-engaging dialogues among them.
