This seminar was promoted by Africa Centre and supported by ConsultingIreland, to mark Africa Day 2015 by promoting African countries for business, trade and investment. The promoters believe that investment and trade will assist economic growth, create employment and help African governments achieve their national development targets. Here in Ireland there are great opportunities to work with the private sector for Africa’s gain - building networks with our counterparts to influence Irish and European trade and development policy.
