For the 7th consecutive year, NABA – together with our co-hosts Norfund and the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs – is proud to organize the leading Nordic business and investor conference focusing exclusively on African markets.

“Investing in Africa’s Transition – How, not Why?” is the overall topic this year. The private sector plays an important part in the continent’s transition, and we believe Nordic companies should and could pay more attention.
