This is the sixth Africa Ireland Economic Forum, the fulcrum of Africa’s economic relation with Ireland. The forum offers an opportunity for African companies to be part of a growing and successful engagement, meet potential partners and engage with one of the successful economy in the world.
The forum is organised by Ireland’s Department of Foreign Affairs & trade, in partnership with the resident African Embassies in Ireland. The focus this year is on the complementary themes of Agri-food and women in business, bringing together business leaders and policy makers from Ireland and Africa to hear about the opportunities for enhanced trade and investment.
Kenya is proud to have Hon. Peter Munya Cabinet Secretary (CS) for Trade, Industry and Cooperatives as one of the keynote speakers alongside Irish Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Foreign Affairs & Trade, Simon Covney TD. The panel will include senior business executives addressing the forum.
With H.E Ambassador Richard Opembe taking over as Dean of African Missions in Ireland, Kenya Embassy Dublin will play a big role in ensuring that the challenges and opportunities for businesses in Africa are discussed and their successes are highlighted accordingly.
Kenya and Ireland have had strong relations for the past century and will be celebrating 100 years of strong partnerships. Kenya and Ireland are proud of exploring further partnerships, including promoting closer economic and trade links. The opportunities for Kenyan organisations in ICT, Education and Agri-food can be realised by continued engagement and cooperation with our Irish partners.
The 100 years celebrations will be at Epic The Irish Emigration Museum on 11th October, 2018 from 17:00 to 19:00. All diaspora are invited to witness and celebrate the occasion with our Irish partners
