The 2014 Africa Finance & Investment Forum was the first AFIF event to be held in Germany, Europe’s uncontested economic powerhouse, and a major trade and investment partner of Africa.
Held in the DEG (German development finance institution) headquarters in Cologne, the forum was opened by Prof. Monty Jones, the newly elected EMRC President, alongside Bruno Wenn, CEO of DEG. More than 200 delegates and business representatives from across Africa and the world came together for two days of disussions and networking.
The event’s plenary sessions were complemented by over 550 business-to-business meetings, leveraging
opportunities and creating partnerships with a real impact for thousands of people.
