What people think about Africa Business Forum

Being from Nigeria I represent one of the fasting growing regions in the world in terms of GDP and growth. Great to see an Africa Business Forum, organised by Africans for Africans. This is truly becoming an important hub and now thanks to the forum, an important meeting place for Africans to connect.

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.
