S-GE Event

Round table Nigeria and Kenya - Fully booked

Are you aware of your business opportunities in these two emerging markets?

Nigeria has already overtaken South Africa as the strongest economy of the African continent. From a global perspective as well, the African nation is able to keep pace and is now among the world’s 30 biggest economies. At the same time, Kenya is showing robust and continuous economic growth, and has pursued a liberal economic model since its independence. As a regional hub for communication and information technology, as well as financial and transportation services, it offers diverse business opportunities.

The approximately 174 million inhabitants of Nigeria and the 48 million in Kenya offer huge potential for Swiss companies. Anyone who manages to position themselves in both countries will enjoy a valuable advantage when it comes to tapping into further African markets.

At the round table on Nigeria and Kenya at Ringier, you will get first-hand information relevant to you as an exporting Swiss SME. At the same time, you can get an exclusive insight into the experiences and success stories of Swiss companies that have expanded into these promising markets. During the business lunch, you can also enjoy individual discussions with members of the Swiss Export Community, the Trade Advisors of the Swiss Business Hubs in Africa, and Ringier’s own Africa experts. You will thereby be able to find out whether the two countries are relevant to your company.

Attend this round table to find out more about the opportunities and challenges that Nigeria and Kenya offer Swiss companies, and what experiences Ringier has had there over the last approximately seven years. You will also have the opportunity to visit the Blick newsroom.
