26th of October: Investing in Africa’s transition: how, not why

NABA – with our co-hosts Norfund and the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs – are proud to welcome Nordic and African business people to the 7th Nordic-African Business Summit in Oslo, Thursday 26th of October.

Africa’s real GDP growth slowed down to 2.2% in 2016, mainly due to the continued fall in commodity prices and weak global economic growth. With dynamic private sectors, entrepreneurial spirit and vast resources, Africa has the potential to grow faster and more inclusively. After focusing many years on why you should put African markets on the radar, this year’s summit will tell you how to invest in Africa’s transition.

500 business people, investors and ambassadors will gather in Oslo for the Nordic region’s leading business conference focusing exclusively on African markets. Government officials includes Ghana’s Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia, as well as distinguished ministers from Egypt, Ethiopia and the Sudan. More than 30 excellent speakers from the private sector from Africa/Nordic region will share their experiences and lessons learnt doing business on the continent.

-We are proud that the annual Nordic-African Business Summit has become the preferred meeting point for Nordic and African business people. We are also very happy with this year’s programme – and can promise our guests valuable connections and lessons learnt. At this year’s conference we will ask more how, in order to make the sessions as fruitful as possible, says Eivind Fjeldstad, Managing Director of NABA.
