What You Can Expect:

Essex Chambers in partnership with ETK Consulting

With the uncertainty of BREXIT looming and a weak £ affecting financial markets now is time for exporters to find new markets and, with our support, more courage to explore them.

This event is tailored to equip you for market expansion into Africa. A lot of companies struggle with figuring out which market is best for them on the continent. Made up of 54 sovereign countries, intra-trade in Africa isn’t as sophisticated as the EU but Africa is a central point in global trade.

We will be introducing ETK Consulting as our new provider for market entry into Africa. ETK will be sharing their vast experience of helping companies, just like yours, get into the African continent and implement projects with less risk, more certainty and create long lasting, mutually beneficial partnerships.

Intertek, the conformity specialist, will advise you on the current conformity programs across Africa relevant to your goods. We will talk about the opportunities in this vast continent including some of the live opportunities, over a range of sectors that are not available anywhere else!
