“To encourage direct investment and trade with key markets in Africa and promote sustainable job creation opportunities, growth and long-term prosperity for Africa and UK businesses.”
Africa House London’s aims are fully embedded in the UK Government’s agenda of The African Free Trade initiative (AFTi) aimed at providing technical experts to unblock issues that continue to hold back economic growth.
Against the backdrop of the government agenda, Africa House London plays an integral role in substantially increasing trade with Africa by leveraging the extensive links and expertise London can provide to Africa and through bilateral trade. During the past couple of decades, there has been steady growth in Foreign Direct Investment in Africa and returns in economic activities have quadrupled in some countries despite the global economic crisis.
Africa House London identifies this as an opportunity to build investor confidence in the African market and support UK businesses to take advantage of the lucrative business and trade opportunities within the continent.
We aim to provide high-end professional business solutions to our clients and partners to add value to new and existing trade and business relationships.
The founding directors and the executive management board members have extensive experience in socio-economic activities in both the UK and Africa with particular expertise in providing comprehensive management, project, events and business finance services to both small and large corporations across Africa and the UK including government agencies.
Africa House London will provide a platform for commercial brokering of trade advice and facilitation, through leadership and support services to UK entrepreneurs, SME’s and businesses wanting to trade with the private sector and government agencies across Africa.
We will also provide and facilitate support to African led businesses in the UK and particularly in London to access trade opportunities within the continent of Africa and vice versa. In addition, Africa House will provide resources for community projects in London.
We aim to work with Strategic Partners, Governments and Government Agencies, to deliver a range of services to facilitate greater trading opportunities and stakeholder collaboration.
