africon had entered into an active partnership with the organizer, the “Auslandsgesellschaft NRW” for several years. Only last year africon particpated in two panels and published a brochure on the opportunities for SMEs. This year the team was happy to particpate again and share their know-how during the event.
The „Market insights Africa”, which africon GmbH created exclusively for the participants of the economic forum gave companies an overview of various industrial sectors – just like the forum did on February 27th 2018 in Dortmund. After a compendious speech by the President of the Republic of Ghana, Mr. Nana Akufo-Addo, and high-level initial round with actors from the politics and business scenes, lively discussions were held on the challenges and opportunities for Africa’s economy.
The managing director of africon GmbH, Marc Zander, had the special honor to take over the moderation in the subject area “Renewable Energies, Environmental Technology and Water Management”. Where he shaded light on exciting insights into best practices of German companies in Africa as well as clear words on the market entry barriers. Other topics were also discussed topics such as “digital economy”, “mechanical and plant engineering” as well as “construction industry and infrastructure”. The insights of experts about real business transactions made the entire forum an all-round successful and enriching event.
