Piafrica 2020 – Postponement of the conference as preventive measure due to
In the attempt to limit and contain the outbreaks of the corona virus and for the health and safety of all delegates, speakers and business partners, it has been taken the hard decision to postpone the 4th Pension Funds and Alternative Investment Africa Conference (PIafrica2020) initially scheduled for 19-20 March 2020, in Mauritius to a latest date, to be announced shortly. The global fight against the COVID-19 has entered a new phase and the Government of Mauritius has diffused a press release today, highlighting measures in place to limit any possible spread of the virus, including travel ban from travelers not only from China, South Korea, Italy but also Germany, France and possibly will be extended to other countries in the next few days.
As the containment of the disease has not reduced as hoped, after due consultations with key stakeholders and partners, we consider it very prudent to delay the event in order to prevent global and national health risks that could arise as a result of the epidemic. Moreover, we also took into consideration the fact that the PIAfrica has become a regional and international platform for key industry partners to discuss key issues and opportunities. The travel ban will affect the overall international participation and we must safeguard the lives of the expected participants at the conference. Our sincere apologies to all delegates, speakers and business partners who have been inconvenienced by this situation. The new dates will be announced shortly and we trust in your understanding.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
