An engaging dialogue about the state of African industrialisation between African ambassadors, commercial attachés and private enterprises based in Austria.
Understanding the state of economic and social affairs in Africa’s emerging markets is crucial. What your business did to be successful in the past might not be ideal in the future. Africa is connected and enlightened today more than ever before.
Industrialisation is back on the economic policy agenda of over 20 African countries. And, there is a trending demand for African governments to partner with the private sector to set the conditions for economic transformation.
Manufacturing goods, agricultural product processing, along with tourism, hospitality and entertainment are the prime catalysts for innovation, improved productivity and job creations. Creating an enabling business environment is at the forefront of at least 26 African countries according to the African Development Bank (2017).
Support for implementing industrialisation strategies in Africa means building and developing infrastructure, domestic financial markets, skills and production capabilities. Business opportunities are abundant. Refer to cases of international trade observed by the European Union and China.
Bilateral trade between China and Africa reached 149.1 billion U.S. dollars in 2016. The European Union is South and West Africa’s largest trading partner.
What’s in it for small and medium enterprises in Europe to doing business in Africa?

The Panel will discuss:
– What is the role of business, science and technology in Africa’s industrialisation process?
