Through promoting multilateralism, the African Union is rapidly increasing its partnerships with global regional and leading country partners, while simultaneously developing and promoting strategic sector plans for inclusive and catalytic growth in important economic areas such as: agriculture, Construction, infrastructure, Tourism and manufacturing. At the same time, the continent’s ultimate policy making body is also becoming more of an advocate for private sector growth and seeking to pursue greater public-private sector collaboration and to stimulate increased intra-African trade and investment.
To support these efforts, this Second Africa-Turkey Economic and Business Forum is intended to serve as a useful business and investment linkages for both public sector policy-makers and private sector in Africa, as well as turkey. The aim is to promote and strengthen collaboration and existing opportunities in Africa and Turkey and make available a platform for government representatives, investors, private sector representatives, and financial institutions from Turkey and Africa to explore investment and business opportunities in both sides. I therefore welcome you all to this important event which we are positive and without any doubt will enhance investments opportunities across Africa and Turkey.
