Event Details

Join Invest Africa in association with BEI at our annual “Meet the Ambassadors” event on West Africa as UK Heads of Mission share their insights on opportunities for British companies abroad and provide political and economic updates on their countries and their region. With the UK looking to reinforce its place in the world more now than ever before many believe there is a wealth of opportunities for UK plc.

Africa’s economic growth continues to strengthen, reaching an estimated 3.5 percent in 2018. The enhanced economic growth across Africa has been wide-ranging, with variation across economies and regions.

There are external and domestic risks that threaten this positive growth outlook ranging from, externally – uncertainty in escalating global trade tensions, normalization of interest rates in advanced economies, and uncertainty in global commodity prices. In some countries increasing vulnerability to debt distress, security and migration issues and instability related to elections and political transition could hinder growth domestically.
