Business Summit In Nairobi Attracts More Than 450 Delegates

Nairobi is hosting more than 450 delegates for the second German African Business Summit. More than half of the delegates present are from Germany, underlining the 3.73 trillion dollar economy's deepening interest in the region. Germany's Minister of Economic Affairs, Brigitte Zypries, noted that Africa is a major priority for her government, expecially in the context of Germany's G20 presidency. This summit is a platform for both business and government to discuss the trade and investment opportunities available in sub-Saharan Africa. The first German African Business Summit in 2015 was held in Berlin. This year's has taken place in Africa for the first time. The choice of Nairobi as a host is indicative of Kenya's growing profile as a business hub in East Africa
