The European Business Council for Africa

24 November 2022

Wassenaar, The Netherlands

The last time we welcomed African Ambassadors assigned to the Benelux, our members, and the wider network for an afternoon of matchmaking and fine dining was in 2019. We had no idea that for the next two years we would remain connected through virtual means alone.Therefore, with great honour, we are happy to announce that long awaited 11th edition of Ambassadors’ Dinner is returning to its physical form and will take place on the 24th of November at the lavish Kasteel de Wittenburg in Wassenaar. The Ambassadors’ Dinner, like every year, will host the Doing Business in Africa (DBA) Award ceremony during which you will have the opportunity to decide who will be the recipient of the DBA 2022 Award. Join us for an evening of matchmaking, fine dining, and merriment by reserving your seat now!

Each year NABC has the honour to hand out the “Doing Business in Africa” Award. During the annual Ambassadors’ Dinner at the end of the year, three pre-selected companies are given the floor to pitch themselves and their successful business activities in Africa. The audience votes on the company that has achieved an honourable success and thus wins the Doing Business in Africa Award. After COVID-19 governed years, we are returning to the physical stage with three nominees who will be competing for the Doing Business in Africa Award 2022. The submission period is now open.

The Doing Business in Africa Award is currently only open to companies with a registered office in the Netherlands and established business activities within one, or more, of the 54 African countries. The service or the product adds value locally in Africa and has a clear link to the SDGs.
