The Nordic-African Business Summit 2015

The Nordic-African Business Summit 2015, NABA’s annual flag ship event, was held on Thursday 29 October 2015 in the Norwegian capital of Oslo.

38 speakers and around 400 African and Nordic leaders, including more than 20 ambassadors from Africa, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark discussed how Nordic capabilities can be linked with African opportunities.

The African continent hosts the world’s youngest, fastest growing urban population, and Africa’s economy must facilitate rapid growth and change in the coming years. This is why “Linking Nordic capabilities to African opportunities” was the main theme at this year’s Nordic-African Business Summit.

“Norway is committed to build further trade relations with the African continent. The Nordic-African Business Summit is one of the initiatives that helps Nordic industries navigate the new investment landscape in African countries,” says Monica Mæland, Norwegian Minister of Trade and Industry.

NABA 2015: Ambassador Zondo of the Oslo Mission is ready for the speed-meeting session. 


“In 2011, the Norwegian-African Business Summit started with a simple idea: if we brought African and Norwegian business leaders together to share experiences, knowledge would increase, investments would accelerate and jobs would be created. Today, in its fifth consecutive year, the biggest Nordic-African Business Summit hosts 400 participants from the Nordic and African markets. Due to its great success, the Norwegian-African Business Summit has now become the Nordic-African Business Summit,” says Eivind Fjeldstad, Managing Director of NABA.

The popular speed meeting session in the afternoon offered a great networking arena. Ambassador Zondo and more than 20 ambassadors/embassy representatives were present to discuss opportunities in their respective African countries with potential business partners.
