African-Nordic Business Conference 2016

COMESA RIA in partnership with Springboard and African Matters Limited is pleased to invite you to African-Nordic Business Conference on 22 September 2016, in Helsinki, Finland. It will be the leading forum in the Nordic region for informed and engaged debate on doing business in Africa. The conference is expect to have over 400 delegates with extensive experience and commitment to Africa. And it will give attendees an excellent opportunity to meet like-minded professionals. 

Africa innovates! It’s time to recalibrate the relationship between Africa and the Nordics. Rapid economic growth, increasing political stability and a growing young and well-educated middle class are causing Nordic involvement in Africa to pivot from a development role toward exploring joint opportunities for trade and innovation exchange. In turn, enterprises and organisations in Africa are looking to build on decades-long development relations to find new partners and innovators in the Nordics. 
Attend the conference to find out how you can join investors and business sharks from both areas to identify innovative opportunities and high-growth ventures.
Why attend? 
  • To target influential participants in Africa and the Nordics;
  • Develop your company’s / organisation’s existing network in the Africa and build potentially fruitful new partnerships in the Nordics;
  • Get access to important decision makers in the Nordics and Africa from government, the private sector, international organisations, consultants, advisors and other stakeholders;
