Africa - An Emerging Market of Opportunities

  • Sofitel Resort, Sentosa 2 Bukit Manis Road 099891 Singapore (map)

Risks identified to help your business succeed in Africa.

In November 2016, Prime Minister Narendra Modi of India and Prime Minister Shinzo Abe of Japan issued a joint declaration announcing the formation of the Asia Africa Growth Corridor (AAGC) initiative.  Singapore has been identified as being one country that could play a major role as a contributor to the AAGC and also be a substantial economic beneficiary.

The Economic Research Institute for ASEAN and East Asia (ERIA), Research and Information System for Developing Countries (RIS), and Institute of Developing Economies (IDE-JETRO) will organize a joint study team with other think tanks and organisations in Asia and Africa to undertake the AAGC vision study.

The purpose of this risk management workshop is to encourage potential businesses interested in the AAGC to gain an understanding of the potential risks and solutions when operating in particularly high risk emerging markets.

The focus on this one-day workshop will be Africa. Some key areas which will be discussed are:-

  • Asia-Africa Growth Corridor Initiative
  • Trade & Logistics Challenges in Africa
  • African Opportunities and a Profile of Two Countries (Nigeria and Botswana)
  • Doing Business Where Governance is Weak
  • ISO 37001 Anti Bribery Management Plan
