Möjligheterna för svenska företag i Afrika.

Myten om Afrika som enbart en källa för råvaror och arbetskraft blir allt svårare att hålla fast vid. Det nya Afrika som växer fram stavas urbanitet, konsumtion och framtidstro. När stora delar av denna kontinent får en medelklass som vill kommunicera, utbilda sig och resa sätts enorma kapitalflöden i rörelse. Här finns möjligheter för svenska företag att vara med!

Vår mycket uppskattade konferens om Afrika är tillbaka under 2016 och vi ser fram emot att tillsammans med våra partners presentera ett spännande program som lyfter fram möjligheterna för svenska företag i Afrika. 

Välkommen!
