Established in 2013, the Africa Investment Exchanges (AIX) have become one of the meeting places of choice for Africa’s energy sector stakeholders. We have taken the AIX meetings online during the Covid-19 disruption. The webinars will continue to be held under the Chatham House Rule and structured round panel led discussions to facilitate open discussion.
