Investor Missions

Invest Africa partners with African, British and European governing bodies to provide trade missions across Africa. Investor Missions are designed to address business delegations’ specific areas of interest. Invest Africa works closely with the UK Government and affiliates, through collaborations with DflD, DIT, FCO, CDC and UKEF. Invest Africa connects Africa-focused investors with the appropriate departments for multi- and bi-lateral discussions to further investment in Africa and previous missions have resulted in successful outcomes such as new partnerships, deals, and acquisitions between delegates and local organisations.
