Doing Business In Africa
According to The Africa Competitiveness Report by the World Economic Forum, The World Bank, The African Development Bank and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark, there is growing international attention focused on Africa as an investment destination and mounting talk of an African economic renaissance. The report emphasised the enthusiasm among global players driven by ten years of increasingly strong growth in Africa amidst the global economic crises that other continents of the world have faced. With over a billion people and averaging growth rates of over 5 percent in the last decade, Africa is a business destination of immense potential. However, many organisations and individuals from other continents do not understand all the subtleties of how to explore, enter and grow in this market.
There are several courses that present the opportunities in new markets to participants, but this course is unique in that it both exposes participants to the potential of the African market and provides clear direction of how to generate revenues in the short, medium and long term. The course is specific and driven by strong market intelligence, an extensive network of partners and associates, a clear understanding of current and potential clients, knowledge of markets across different sectors and the provision to help you tap into this market.
This workshop will focus on opportunities in the sustainability/environment sectors covering technology, education/training, finance, media, resource management and retailing.

Individuals, companies and organisations interested in exploring, entering or growing sales in the African market. They could have no to some working knowledge of the African market.
