The European Business Council for Africa

Afrika-Verein (German-African Business Association) and GAA – German Agribusiness Alliance are pleased to invite you to the 8th German-African Agribusiness Forum "Blueprints for Successful Agriculture in Africa" on January 20th, 2022.

The agriculture sector also coined as the primary sector is the most essential of many African economies – the Covid-19 pandemic has proven that once more.

Disruptions in the agriculture values chains leading to surging food prices and shortages result in consequences which hit people most directly. While the demand in other sectors crumbled, the agriculture sector proofed to be the most resilient one. This does not only show us the importance of agriculture in Africa but also its potential for successful investments.

We decided to go one step further. Instead of looking on potentials only, we want to demonstrate how to seize these potentials by showcasing successful investments and strategies. Therefore, the German-African Agribusiness Forum 2022 focusses on Blueprints for Successful Agriculture in Africa by looking at the topics:

- Best-Practice and Take-Aways: Learning from Successful Investments in Africa

- Frameworks: Factors Making Agriculture in Africa a Success

- Innovative Concepts: Adapting Business Approaches to Africa


Due to the ongoing special situation regarding COVID-19 the 8th edition of the GAAF will take place online again, making the conference even more accessible to hundreds of companies from all over the world.

Conference languages are English and French. Online simultaneous translation will be provided.
