Africa Business Day

AFRICA BUSINESS DAY 2020 – The annual platform for business between Switzerland and Africa

Africa Business Day will be hosted by Roche on 26 June 2020 in Basel


The Africa Business Day is the indispensable annual platform in Switzerland for doing business in and with Africa. Africa Business Day, organized by the Swiss-African Business Circle brings together more than 200 participants including CEOs, members of the Board, business development managers, export managers and investors. During the event, African Embassies/Missions  present investment opportunities in their respective countries at country desks in the dedicated exhibition area.

Theme: Emerging Business Models
The theme of AFRICA BUSINESS DAY 2020 is Emerging Business Models. Digitalization, an increasingly shared and collaborative global economy and rapidly changing customer behaviors are changing the nature of business models that define how companies create, distribute and capture value for stakeholders (shareholders, clients, partners etc.). What new and innovative business models are on the horizon? And how will multi-dimensional expectations from stakeholders beyond pure shareholder thinking influence and shape business models going forward?
