Trade Missions


Trade Mission to East Africa

The Africa Business Centre is organising a five-day trade mission to Kenya and Uganda for UK based energy companies. It will provide a comprehensive introduction to oil and gas opportunities via briefings and meetings with key government and commercial contacts.

This year's mission will be split into two groups and will follow two separate programmes. One programme will be specific to the energy sector. This is for companies that are in oil and gas, construction and for providers of education and training in this sector, whilst the other will be multi-sector. We can tailor a programme for most market opportunities.  

When 23-27 March 2015

Cities Nairobi and Kampala
