About the event

The Department for International Trade North West would like to invite you to the launch of the newly formed Africa Business Group, which has been set up to provide information, support and identify trade opportunities in Africa for companies working with DIT in North West England.

The group will present an opportunity to network with local businesses that are doing business in Africa, top African businesses and Africa investors in focused meetings.

We are looking for companies in the North West that are interested in doing business in Africa, or are already doing business in Africa. All sizes and sectors are welcome to attend.

Launch event will be held on Thursday 30th July, 10am to 12pm via Microsoft Teams
