EU-Africa Business Forum (EABF) 2022

Participate now in our EABF workshops!

The European Commission, the African Union Commission, as well as EU and African business organisations are co-organizing the 7th EU-Africa Business Forum (EABF22) which will mainly take place online. For three days, African and European political and business leaders from various sectors will be brought together to exchange on EU-African trade and investment opportunities. Within the event, Invest for Jobs hosts two interesting workshops about the textile and sustainable mobility sector.

The first workshop is about the African Fashion and Textile Accelerator Network (Africa FAN) project. Africa FAN aims to strengthen the collaboration between European and African companies in the textile and apparel sector to create more sustainable jobs in Africa. The project is implemented with the International Trade Center (ITC).

The workshop addresses directly European fashion brands or retailers, who want to diversify their supply chain or expand their business activities in Africa. Industry representatives will present their business activities in the African textile market and how they benefit from our support.


Monday, 14.02. from 3:15 to 4:00 p.m. (CET)

The second workshop approaches the topic of sustainable mobility. Africa with its growing population and increased urbanisation offers many opportunities, as this sector is very dynamic and has a great potential for economic growth in Africa. We will present to you how we support companies in this promising sector in order to create good jobs locally. Furthermore, industry representatives will present their investment projects and how they benefit from our support during the digital discussion round.


Tuesday, 15.02. from 4:00 to 5:30 p.m. (CET).
