The European Business Council for Africa

We are very pleased to invite you to the 5th Workshop with Private Sector in the framework of the Policy Forum on Development (PFD) that will take place in Brussels on 20th March 2018 and will be hosted at the Management Center Europe (Rue de l'Aqueduc 118, 1050 Ixelles) in Brussels.

Where are we with the implementation of the External Investment Plan? How does it support investment in Africa and the Neighbourhood? What are the opportunities and challenges? What are the major business constraints that could be addressed by EC's actions under the EIP 3rd pillar? How can private-public dialogue be more effective? What are the experiences from current initiatives for engaging at global, regional or local level (follow up of the EU Africa Business Forum in Abidjan, development of EU Business groups, networking of European Business Organisations, implementation of the Sustainable Business for Africa Platform)? These are important questions which will steer our discussion during the event.
