The Nordic-African Business Summit 2016, NABA’s annual flagship event, was held on Thursday 13 October in the Norwegian capital of Oslo.

Welcoming remarks were given by Norwegian Minister of Foreign Affairs Mr. Børge Brende and he said, “The potential is endless when it comes to Africa and urbanization. Norway will partner with African countries that are also interested in private sector partnerships.”

The encouraging words were followed by plenary sessions and panel debates which included key speakers such as former President of South Africa, Mr. Thabo Mbeki, who focused his speech on the African State of Affairs and what it means for the future development of the continent.

The popular speed meeting session in the afternoon offered a great networking arena. Ambassador Zondo and 1st Secretary Mepha from the Oslo Mission, alongside more than 20 ambassadors/embassy representatives were present to discuss opportunities in their respective African countries with potential business partners.

The Norwegian-African Business Association (NABA) was established six years ago to promote business opportunities on the African continent and serve as a bridge between Norwegian and African business communities.

NABA has an extensive network across the continent and is working with private sector companies in Norway and in African countries.

NABA is a member of the European Business Council for Africa and the Mediterranean (EBCAM). Its 12 associations across Europe represent more than 4000 companies present in African markets.
