Africa is the continent where key global opportunities are playing out and where solutions
are being discovered and partnerships forged to respond to the challenges of the present and
future. As such, Africa is playing a central role in shaping both political and developmental
narratives, policies, and new institutions in the global governance system.
The year 2023 is unique for international cooperation with South Africa holding the BRICS
presidency and three developing countries in the G20 Troika – Indonesia (past presidency), India
(current presidency), and Brazil (next presidency), with South Africa to follow. A key outcome of
India’s Presidency has been the introduction of the African Union as a permanent member of the
G20. Now is the time to realize common futures, and to move beyond the binaries of North –
South and for innovation and Dialogue to flow. In this effort, India is a unique partner – it can
share its developmental frameworks and bring voices from the developing world to shape
Cape Town Conversations will serve as an annual South Africa-based platform that brings
together key stakeholders and new voices. It is designed as a common platform where
established and emerging actors convene for a global conversation on contemporary issues of
global governance —identifying new challenges, ideating possible solutions and shaping the
world order of the future.
