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.


I am the Deputy Consul General of the Federal Republic of Ethiopia in the UAE. It is great to support such a Pan-African platform. Myself and my team have made a lot of new contacts and new potential business leads interested in investing in East Africa.


Addleshaw Goddard (Middle East & Africa) LLP. Leading International Law Firm. Part of a business-led Africa initiative chaired by the UK Minister of State for Trade and Investment and backed by UK Prime Minister, David Cameron.

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.
