Investing in Africa's Growing Cities

Last year 472 million people were living in cities in Africa – nearly double the figure of 20 years ago. Yet two-thirds of the infrastructure needed to accommodate this growth has yet to be built. Expanding African cities will drive economic growth – and the theme for this year’s Nordic-African Business Summit is “Investing in Africa’s Growing Cities”.

Africa’s future economy hosts the world’s youngest, most rapidly urbanising people – and will have the world’s largest population in working age – 1,1 billion – by 2034. Join the Nordic-African Business Summit 2016 to understand the business opportunities on offer across the African Continent and how Nordic companies should position themselves to capture these.

Highlights include

Mr. Tutu Agyare

Managing Partner, Nubuke Investments

Dr. Henri-Bernard Solignac-Lecomte

Head of Africa Unit, OECD

Mr. Kai Mykkänen

Minister for Foreign Trade and Development, Finland

Mr. Kjell Roland
