Marc Zander, CEO & Partner of XCOM Africa has been invited to be a speaker at the ALN conference in Dubai. Mr. Zander participated in the FMCG panel discussing the opportunities in Africa with focus on Nigeria. Outcome of the session has been that there is strong potential in Sub-Saharan Africa but companies need to develop country strategies to meet the customers needs.
The conference brought together approximately 500 thought leaders on investing and doing business in Africa to discuss the sectors and regions in Africa that provide the greatest opportunities for foreign investors, while analysing the legal and regulatory implications of doing business on the continent. The event was graced by dignitaries across different countries including His Excellency Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan of the UAE, a delegation of senior officials from the Judiciary of Zambia, led by the Chief Justice, Hon. Justice Madam Irene Mambilima and Kenya’s Solicitor General, Mr. Njee Muturi. We also had the pleasure of hosting well-known business leaders across Africa and other parts of the world.
