Maiden Spain-Africa Business Forum convenes in Gran Canaria for trade integration, investment opportunities


With eyes set on establishing contacts and exploring business and investment opportunities, Chambers of Commerce of West Africa and the Spanish Chambers of commerce have met on the Spanish Island of Gran Canaria.

The maiden forum is further aimed at brainstorming ways to improve partnership and trade among the chambers in Spain and predominantly West Africa.

Being held for the first time under the auspices of the Cámara de Comercio de Gran Canaria the forum assembled the national chambers of commerce of eight West African states, multilateral institutions, academia, the private sector and the media to dialogue on ways to consolidate the trade relationship between Gran Canaria & Spain with the African members.

The forum was attended by several chambers from the neighbouring West African countries including; Ghana, Ivory Coast, Cape Verde, Gambia, Guinea Bissau, Nigeria, Senegal and Mauritania. The large African participation enabled Canarian companies to cover key countries for potential investments across the chambers and the two continents.

With tourism being one of the priority areas, the speakers included the Reginal Director of Africa at the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) Elcia Grandcourt and the Director of Membership at World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) Adolfo Reyes.
