The Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry will work with Expo 2020 Dubai at the 4th Global Business Forum (GBF) on Africa, with the aim of raising awareness about the first World Expo to be held in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia (MEASA) region.
Dubai Chamber and Expo 2020 Dubai will align during the forum held at the emirate’s Madinat Jumeirah on November 1st-2nd, 2017, to facilitate new channels of communication and cooperation between African and UAE business.
GBF Africa will be held under the theme “Next Generation Africa” and provide an ideal platform for Expo 2020 Dubai to highlight its mission, key initiatives and projects, in addition to growth opportunities that the World Expo can offer to African companies.
The forum will bring together over 1,000 top-level government and corporate decision-makers, including African heads of state, ministers and dignitaries, prominent CEOs operating globally, prominent entrepreneurs, UAE government and business leaders, and other high-level delegates.
During the Forum, Expo 2020 Dubai will showcase its ‘Expo Learning Lab’, which will be a platform to highlight the wide range of opportunities which Expo will offer to all participants from around the world.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to meet grantees from the Expo Live programme, whose projects are either based in Africa or offer creative solutions to issues that impact people’s lives across the continent.
Expo Live’s flagship Impact Innovation Grant Programme has USD 100 million to back a range of projects, with 45 grantees from 30 countries winning support to date. More info
