Africa 5.0: Markets, potentials and opportunities for German companies


┬ęGIZ/Dirk Ostermeier

This is the slogan for the German-African Economic Forum NRW, which will be held for the fifth time on February 27th at the Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Dortmund. Small and medium-sized companies will receive sector- and country-specific information from experienced entrepreneurs who are already active in Africa.

This year, the focus will lie on the infrastructure and construction sector, renewable energies, environmental technology and water management, agricultural machinery as well as on the digital economy. Through an approved combination of expert knowledge and best practice examples, participants will receive up-to-date market data, wide-ranging information and a network of entrepreneurs with experience of African markets.

In addition to the input sessions, delegates from the German business community and representatives of the German Chambers of Commerce in Africa will be available for personal counselling in the Consultant Lounge throughout the day. A representative of Germany Trade & Invest (GTAI) and an EZ-Scout will also be present to discuss opportunities of cooperation.
