Africa Trade & Invest meets Managing Risk
"Setting the right frame to unlock Africa’s trade and investment opportunities"
November 6th & 7th, 2024 in Frankfurt am Main

In times of geopolitical recalibration and green economic transformation, German businesses draw more attention to the African continent due to its geographical proximity, its skilled labour potential, its vast resources, as well as its rapidly growing markets and economies. Deepening economic relations and promoting investments, based on the principles of sustainability and inclusivity, will create a win-win situation for African states and Germany. Some of the necessary pre-requisites are ease of business and risk assessments & insurance, and accessible financing instruments.

Afrika-Verein’s Africa Trade & Invest meets Managing Risk Forum is a platform for solution-oriented reflections upon the current (geo-)political situation on the African continent, identifying necessary governmental and regulatory frameworks to broaden German companies' presence in African countries, mapping existing risk mitigation and financing schemes, showcasing African and German hidden champions, discussing action points for accelerating regional integration, as well as discussing what role companies and public partners can play in this process.

The following topics will be at the core of this Forum:

•    Geopolitics & diversification
•    Frameworks for investment and financing of different scales
•    Regional integration, trade corridors and economic zones
•    Risk mapping and management
•    Supply chains, ESG, due diligence
•    Cyber, operational & infrastructure security
•    Added local value chains: sustainable and transparent
•    Trade & investment opportunities and hidden champions

The concept note as well as our various sponsorship options are available via the menue above.

The early bird registration is available HERE. The reduced prices are valid until August 6th.
