The Netherlands-African Business Council (NABC) will be hosting their flagship event, Africa Works!

The importance of innovation has been further emphasised by the COVID-19 crisis that exposed the fragility of interconnected economies, leading to calls for increased “resilience” in the recovery phase. Innovative thinking is increasingly promoted to address some of the grand challenges of the 21st century: providing food, water, and energy to the continent’s soaring population (by 2030, one in five people will be African), while staying within the limits of an intricately linked system that is undergoing (climate) change. Africa Works! 2022 is designed to promote and facilitate international trade between Africa and the Netherlands, facilitate foreign direct investment in Africa, and provide a platform to expand or establish business operations in Africa.

Date: 1-2 June 2022

Governments and economies around the world are facing enormous challenges. As diverse as the current hurdles may be, they have one thing in common globally: there must be fundamental change that is reflected in politics, culture, economics and society. While climate change is forcing us to put sustainability at the center of our economies, we will only succeed in changing our world for the better if we promote women as leaders and an equal part of our society.

In many parts of Africa, women still do not play an equal role in society, culture, business and politics. For development, education and equal opportunities to be effectively implemented, long-overdue decisions must be made and women in Africa must be given special support. Full equality must be prioritized as an integral part of politics and the economy, and ultimately enshrined in law. There is a long way to go. We discuss the hurdles and potentials on the way to women‘s empowerment in Africa with five experts.
