An engaging dialogue to discuss the role of foreign aid between private enterprises and non-governmental organisations.
Conventional foreign aid hardly deals directly with problems confronting Africa and developing countries. Traditional charity models indeed relieve the symptoms but do not address the causes facing us people and the planet.
The new school of thought combines business and sustainability to increase productivity and improve access to market, information and technology. To the forefront are private enterprises, using innovative business models and the power of markets to challenge the world’s mutual threats.
Trade has a pivotal role to play in sustainable development. The United Nations has given us the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), as comprehensive guidelines and a framework for collaboration to address global issues.
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.
What’s in it for small and medium enterprises in Europe to doing business in Africa?
Frontiers of Dialogue will explore Agenda: Aid by Trade.
The Panel will discuss:
– What is the benefits and pitfalls of foreign aid?
– How are business partnerships with NGOs improving access to the market?
– What are the challenges and success factors of cross-sector collaborations?
– Which goods and services are demanded to aid the development of lower income economies?
– Essential steps to promoting aid by trade.
