Doing Business In Africa
Hosted by:
Lancaster & District Chamber of Commerce
Lancaster University, Bailrigg, Lancaster, UK
13 Nov 2018
10:30 AM - 2:00 PM


According to The Africa Competitiveness Report by the World Economic Forum, The World Bank, The African Development Bank and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark, there is growing international attention focused on Africa as an investment destination and mounting talk of an African economic renaissance.

The report emphasised the enthusiasm among global players driven by ten years of increasingly strong growth in Africa amidst the global economic crises that other continents of the world have faced. With over a billion people and averaging growth rates of over 5 percent in the last decade, Africa is a business destination of immense potential. However, many organisations and individuals from other continents do not understand all the subtleties of how to explore, enter and grow in this market.

Who should attend:
Individuals, companies and organisations interested in exploring, entering or growing sales in the African market. They could have no to some working knowledge of the African market. The course is very strategic, it highlights innovative models of doing business that has been built by experience, networks, business requests and market intelligence.

Other Benefits:
On the back of the course, participants will be able to access a highly subsidised consultancy service to assist them in taking advantage of African markets, using our extensive network of consultants resident both in the UK and in various African countries.

Potential target markets:
Nigeria, Ghana, Sierra Leone, Liberia, South Africa, Togo, Benin Republic, Tanzania, Angola, Mali, Kenya, The Gambia, Angola, Uganda
