Africa is regarded as the final frontier for the automotive industry. This is why even in disruptive times, German automotive players should not miss to swing aboard the moving train. Now is the time to connect, network and inform yourselves in order not to miss the market of the future.
Growing population, rising economies, high political will to support the creation of regional value chains in African countries: a diversity of factors drives the ability of African consumers to partake in the mobility of the future. Sure, pitfalls remain: small and fragmented markets, local industries which still need to grow. However, regionalization efforts, investor willingness and automotive policies are bound to change major hurdles, also for German companies in the automotive sector.
This is why the Afrika-Verein (German-African Business Association) invites you to the
1st German-African Automotive Forum
"Towards an European Approach for unlocking Africa's automotive potential"
in Stuttgart (Robert Bosch GmbH) on 11 February 2020.
