Business Finland together with Business Tampere warmly welcomes you to the East Africa, a dynamic region with fast growing market event on 26 August, 2022 at 09:30 - 12:30 in Tampere.
East Africa is the fastest growing market in Africa. Urbanization, developing infrastructure and the growing middle class offer great business opportunities for Finnish companies.
Numerous infrastructure projects are underway in the region, ports, airports, the road network and logistics solution. There are a demand for services and new solutions in the agricultural, energy, mining and construction sectors. The growing middle class in cities needs quality health-, safety-, consumer- and education services. There is also a demand for smart energy, waste and circular economy innovations in fast growing mega cities.
Come to listen the opportunities in East Africa with the region's ambassadors and Business Finland's experts. The event will be held in Finnish. Welcome!
