During two days, on the 1st and 2nd of October, public authorities, business leaders, delegates and representatives from a broad range of organizations gathered in Stockholm to participate in the Scandinavian African Business Forum, set up by the Scandinavian African Foundation for Growth. Inclusive Business Sweden was there to lead and join the discussions and conversations about business and investment related issues for the empowerment of the emerging African economies.

Seminars and workshops provoked great discussions about how to build bridges between Scandinavia and Africa through new forms of agro-business, trade and ICT, strengthened partnerships between different sectors, facilitated business and export transactions in difficult markets and much more. Information and insights about how African business can break into European markets, investment opportunities, specific country needs and chances for collaboration were also shared among the participants of this inspirational gathering.

The forum hence offered imperative opportunities for networking and establishing new partnerships. It was therefore of great value for Inclusive Business Sweden, not least for the progress of the Inclusive Business Co-creation Accelerator. A big thank you to the organizers and participants for organizing a great event!
