The flagship event of the Netherlands-African Business Council (NABC), Africa Works! is a biennial conference organized to position, promote and market the African continent as a valuable trade and investment destination. The fourth edition takes place on April 8 and 9, 2019 at the Van Nelle Fabriek in Rotterdam.
The future of Africa is urban. Therefore, the theme of Africa Works! 2019 is Future African Cities with an aim to connect African urbanization challenges to business opportunities for the European private sector. The first day of Africa Works! 2019 will be dedicated to ‘Building Future African Cities’ while day 2 is dedicated to ‘Powering African Cities’.
New to Africa Works! 2019 are the Round Tables. These intensive high-level sessions provide a unique platform for exchanging views and in-depth discussions and will involve carefully selected participants from both the public and the private sector. One of the tables will be the Round Table Resilient & Waterproof Cities, hosted by Chief Resilience Officer Arnoud Molenaar.
