The European Business Council for Africa

Founded in 2012 by the Netherlands-African Business Council (NABC), Africa Works! is a thematic bi-annual conference organized to position, promote and market the African continent as a valuable trade and investment destination. A visit to Africa Works! will inform, inspire, and connect the Dutch private sector with myriad companies and government representatives from Africa. Previous editions of Africa Works! attracted 400 to 500 visitors on each conference day. The 2016 edition of Africa Works! was addressed by Klaas Knot, President of the Dutch Central Bank while the 2012 edition was visited by Queen Maxima of The Netherlands.

This year, NABC’s flagship event will feature the theme of Future African Cities. The first day wil be dedicated to ‘Building Future African cities’ while day 2 is dedicated to ‘Powering Future African cities.’
