Afrika-Verein (German-African Business Association) has the pleasure to invite you to the
1st Africa Finance@Trade
"Risk vs. Opportunity: Financing Trade with (and in) Africa"
on November 18th, 2021,
The strengthening of international and local trade finance structures is crucial to economic growth in Africa and important for the integration into international value chains. In addition, the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) promises to boost inner-African trade and a growing middle class is encouraging ex- and import to strengthen local markets and satisfy local demand. Still trade financing conditions lack affordability, speed, innovation and too often flexibility. What needs to change to make the financing of exports to and within Africa more successful and scalable? What can be done to de-risk business-to-business interactions? Who can offer competitive financing options to their customers?
These and more topics will be discussed during our various sessions with senior experts from Germany, Europe and Africa. After the conference all attendees will have the opportunity to hold 1:1 meetings and interact with our speakers.
Please download the program with all speakers and all topics here.
While we are starting with a digital edition, this is just the starting point for a Germany based two-day event with a focus on Trade, Digitalization and Finance in 2022.
We are looking forward to join ideas and networks for better trade finance in Africa.
