Doing Business in Africa: Nigeria & South Africa

July 3, 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Event Navigation

 

Given its 1.1 billion people that make up 15% of the world’s population, we decided it’s time to focus on Africa. Growth in Sub-Saharan Africa’s economy is projected to gain momentum this year thanks to stable commodity prices, a healthy global economy and recoveries in the region’s major players, Nigeria and South Africa.  Sub-Saharan African trade volumes are expected to quadruple by 2030.

This region is becoming more appealing to UK businesses since International Trade secretary Liam Fox, on a trade trip to South Africa and Mozambique last year, announced that the UK will double its support for trade with South Africa by an additional £1.75bn. Support will be made available through the UK’s export credit agency UK Export Finance (UKEF).

Overview:

This seminar, delivered as part of the ERDF funded Enhancing SME’s International Trade Performance project, presents a great opportunity to hear first-hand experiences from those who have lived and ran businesses on the continent.  The knowledgeable advice will detail what opportunities there are for your business, how your company can make the most of these and what support is available to help you grow internationally.

Highlights of the seminar include:

Market overview

Developing your market

Business culture

Sector opportunities

Grants for Export travel and exhibitions

Chance for 1:1 with speakers

Opportunity for networking & a light lunch

 

Who should attend?
