What people think of Africa Business Forum

Testimonials

The conference was essential for international companies present to learn about trends in the investment, opportunities and regulatory environments in Africa and specifically in Ethiopia, and discuss ideas, share information, experiences, and last but not least network. We have established new business contacts with numerous delegates and it’s with a great pleasure to be part of this.

I enjoyed the conference thoroughly. This was my first trip to Ethiopia and it was a great introduction to the tremendous business and partnership opportunities. Every single presentation and panel discussion was useful and valuable. The presence of top companies in the industry was also highly interesting. Thank you for inviting us to be part of this transformative event.

I represent the Dubai Government Export Agency towards Africa. It is very important to support and enhance the trade links between Dubai and the rest of Africa. Africa is becoming one of the most important re-export markets for the UAE and also a base for many Africans looking to do business Globally.
