Concept Africa Business Week

To run a full five days’ “Africa Business Week”is a “first”, a novel scheme for presenting and promoting African – German – European business. The concept allows for the bundling of complex matters and the levying of economies of scale. This yields advantages for presenters, participants as well as partners and supporters.

In line with the motto „Doing Business – Sharing Success” the conference week highlights that Africa is a continent on which business grows fast and offers innumerable opportunities. The Africa Business Week promotes African-European business and fosters growing business relations equally between African and European companies. The conference week provides a platform to develop and deepen existing synergies and to create new possibilities for a common future.
