The Africa Investment Conference will provide a platform for UK and African businesses to make connections and learn more about the support offered by the UK Government to business and investors. It will also be an opportunity for attendees to hear directly from UK companies about the opportunities and challenges of investing in and doing business across Africa. 

The half-day Africa Investment Conference will explore how inclusive, the sustainable and resilient investment can serve to help Africa transition to a cleaner, greener growth trajectory and will showcase the UK’s capability and emerging opportunities across the continent.

Highlighting the UK Department for International Trade’s support that is available to business, the conference will make the case for a strengthened, closer collaboration and partnership between the UK and Africa.

The conference will have a focus around four key sectors of activity, and will showcase UK capability and the emerging opportunities across Africa in these sectors:
