There is an ever increasing focus on economic growth and investment opportunities in Africa as many of the continent's economies show signs of far-reaching transformation. This event will provide an opportunity for the financial services sector and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) looking to expand with new trading partners, to discuss prospects for UK businesses in Africa.

The Lord Mayor of London, who recently returned from leading an overseas business delegation to Nigeria, Angola and Ghana, and Richard Fuller MP, Vice-Chairman of the Nigeria APPG, will discuss their perspectives on opportunities in West Africa, reflecting on findings from recent visits. 

Attendance is by invitation only.

This is a joint event with the City of London, the FCO and the APPG on Nigeria.
