The African Development Bank (AfDB) is pleased to announce that it will host the second Business Opportunities Seminar in Tunis on 13 and14 November 2012. Business Opportunity Seminars are targeted at private sector organisations from the AfDB’s 77 member countries. 

The objective is to provide a forum relating to the AfDB’s lending policies, procurement rules, operation cycle, and project pipelines.  

The seminars will be a mix of plenary sessions and bilateral meetings, and participants will be become better informed on  how to identify  business opportunities in various sectors,  including infrastructure, energy, private sector, water and sanitation, agriculture, and education.

The BOS are intended to strengthen partnerships between the AfDB and the business sector in both regional and non-regional member countries.

The BOS in June was attended by more than 30 participants.

While the AfDB does not charge a participation fee, the participants are expected to cover the personal costs such as flight tickets, accommodation, transportation, meals and so on by their own.
