On 17 May 2017, the Africa Platform of Ghent University Association will organize its 4th Network Event. On that occasion, we bring together the private sector, academia and NGOs to exchange experiences and best practices about working in Africa.
We will open the afternoon with a presentation from the Directorate-General of Agriculture and Rural Development to the European Commission, where they will stress collaboration with Nigeria and Ethiopia.
The keynote lecture will be presented by Patrick Gomes, Secretary-General of the African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States.

Participants will then split up in individual sessions, where Flemish CEOs will present their success stories and failures about working in Africa + discussion:
• Agriculture and forests
• (Micro)financing
• Energy and water
• Trade (import & export)
We will close with a networking reception.
