After the great success of the first GABS in Berlin in 2015, this second conference provides the perfect platform for decision-makers in business and politics from Germany and the African continent.

GABS will focus on Africa’s economic potential and discuss future trends in African-German cooperation. The continent is the world’s second-fastest growing economy after East Asia.
