About AGBF 2014

Held under the patronage of HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, the second Africa Global Business Forum will highlight Dubai’s role as an international gateway to Africa.


The objective of AGBF is to encourage international revenue flows into Africa by engaging leading decision-makers on the global investment scene. The Forum will involve prominent stakeholders from the African Union and Economic Blocs to engage in dialog at the highest level of implementation, advising on key strategic directives related to Africa’s economic outlook.


With Dubai becoming a significant source of investment across Africa and a base for fast-growing bilateral trade, the Forum will also highlight why Dubai is growing as a hub for African entrepreneurs to access global markets and an international investor base for African operations.
