27 Aug 2015 8:30 - 10:30 Business Sweden, Klarabergsviadukten 70, Stockholm

Seminar: Opportunity in the airports sector in Eastern Africa

Extensive investments are made in the Eastern African airports sector. Ethiopia and Kenya are increasing capacity at their main airports; competing to become the regional hub. In addition, in all of Ethiopia, Kenya and Tanzania, several other international and regional airports are planned to be built, expanded or upgraded. Business Sweden invites you to a breakfast seminar in Stockholm on August 27 to learn more about the business opportunities available.

The Trade Commissioner to Kenya, Mr. Robin Pettersson will be presenting the airport projects in further detail, as well as the activities Business Sweden has planned to assist Swedish companies in becoming a part of these projects.

Last year, a delegation was organised to Kenya, Rwanda and Uganda allowing close interaction with the key stakeholders in the airports sector, which led to concrete business opportunities for several of the participating companies. Guest speaker and CEO of Aviation Capacity Resources AB, Mr. Wilhelm Wohlfahrt, will be sharing his experiences as one of last year’s participants.

Building on last year’s successful event, a delegation is planned to visit Ethiopia, Kenya and Tanzania in November 2015. Please get in touch if you haven’t yet received the invitation.
