Highlighting Africa’s economic potential
The African Business Awards brings together business leaders and companies who are making a significant contribution to Africa’s business climate and economic development. Africa has the potential for growth and investments, and businesses, on the continent and abroad, are maximising the opportunities available to them. Their achievements continue to change the perception of Africa’s potential in domestic and international markets. They are creating new economic opportunities for citizens and communities all over the continent and inspiring the new generation of entrepreneurs who will shape the future of Africa's 54 countries. The objective of the African Business Awards is to highlight this successful and confident Africa which is largely open to local, regional and global business ventures.
High profile business and industry representatives, entrepreneurs, government officials and diplomats from Africa, Asia, Europe and the USA gather once a year at the African Business Awards to honour the outstanding achievements of the business community in Africa.
