Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) across Borders: Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa
 
We will look into practices and strategies to operate with the highest ethical
standards and maximise the benefits of business expansion in Africa.
A critical success factor in doing business in Africa is to exercise CSR initiatives in the
form of fair trade, skills development, job creation and environment management.
We have invited a multidisciplinary panel of distinguished practitioners with experience
of trading in Africa to share their insights on setting up profitable, sustainable
businesses.

More and more companies in Europe are seeking collaborating African partners to help tap into opportunities in Africa, and its complex environmental and social value chain challenges.
