The European Business Council for Africa

It is my pleasure to inform you of one of NABC's major annual conferences: the Francophone Africa Business Forum (FAB Forum), which will take place on June 19th in Madurodam, The Hague. 

What is the FAB Forum? 

The FAB Forum is the only existing business and knowledge-sharing platform focusing on trade and investment in Francophone Africa. The forum has a full-day programme including a plenary session with panel discussions; workshops; matchmaking; a company/country exhibition and a networking reception. Each year, the forum is visited by a large delegation from Mali, Niger and Burkina Faso, as well as several other Francophone African countries (such as Senegal, Côte d'Ivoire, Benin and Tunisia). More than 200 companies from the Netherlands and the rest of Europe attend the event. French-English translation is provided throughout the day. More information can be found on the FAB Forum website

Theme 2018: Creating Partnerships in Agribusiness

This year's 4th edition of the FAB Forum has the theme of 'creating partnerships in agribusiness'. Special focus will be put on the following sectors: livestock (poultry, meat, dairy, animal feed), fruit and vegetables (production, seeds, fertilizer) and agrologistics (transport, export, packaging, conservation). Besides large companies and SMEs, the forum also attracts government representatives, knowledge institutes and start-ups. 


There are several opportunities to highlight your company or organization during the event. For example by hosting a workshop, setting up a company stand, or becoming a strategic event sponsor.
