ICC World Trade Agenda Day – Nairobi

Nairobi, Kenya, • English
ICC World Trade Agenda Day – Nairobi

Following the successful event held in London in March 2017, this ICC World Trade Agenda Day will focus on unlocking Africa’s potential through trade and investment for sustainable and inclusive growth.

Description

The half-day event will bring together leaders from companies and international organisations, together with Kenyan and regional business leaders and key Ministers to discuss global economic trends and outlook for 2017. What implications could these have for Kenya and Africa as a whole?

Two high-level panels will provide the local and regional business community an opportunity to engage with speakers in discussing challenges to entering international markets and possible solutions to fully realise the opportunities increased trade and investment can bring.  Participants will also learn about business-led initiatives to mobilise the private sector worldwide around an inclusive and multilateral “World Trade Agenda” that can help WTO members achieve tangible results leading to a measurable impact on trade-led growth and development. The event will conclude with a networking lunch.

Who should attend?
This programme will be of interest to business and trade professionals, as well as anyone else with an interest in international trade issues.
