Africa 1-2-1 Business clinic

Essex Chambers of Commerce, Unit B3, Parkside Office Village, Colchester, Essex CO4 3ZL

Thursday 21st May 2020
9:30am - 4:45pm

Whether you are new to export, already exporting, or need advice and knowledge on trading in Africa - this one to one business clinic is for you! 

Africa boasts six of the 15 fastest growing economies in the world. It has one of the fastest growing youth populations with more than 400 million people aged 15–35 and there has been a huge amount of growth predicted across the continent in sectors including: agriculture, renewables, finance and technology. The African Continental Free Trade Agreement will come into effect in July 2020, creating an opportunity for the UK to negotiate with the African Union (AU) as a single trading bloc. This will boost the potential in redefining, reinvigorating and rebranding the UK-Africa relationship.

Our expert from ETK Group will explore:

  • The benefits of establishing trade partners in Africa to your business
  • Crucial techniques to minimise challenges and maximise business success
  • Key milestones to consider when growing your business in Africa

The year ahead presents an opportunity for the UK and Africa to negotiate more favourable trading terms for both their economies and for UK businesses to broker successful ventures in Africa and cement both importing and exporting relationships.
