Jan 20, 2015, 10:14 AM | Article By: Picture: HRH Prince Ebrahim Sanyang

HRH Prince Ebrahim, one of Africa’s foremost investors and entrepreneurs, will be speaking about the future business relations between Britain and Africa – the world’s fastest growing continent - at Institute of Directors (IoD) on 20 January 2015 at 6:30pm.

With six of the world’s fastest growing economies and a wealth of still-untapped opportunities for trade and investments, both British and African businesses stand to gain significantly from strengthening their links, both in the interest of boosting shared prosperity and good corporate governance.

The IoD (Institute of Directors) is uniquely poised to help develop these opportunities and turn them into a reality. We will be hosting a networking reception to hear HRH Prince Ebrahim of HRH Prince Ebrahim’s Future Africa Foundation announce a new initiative for business to take this engagement forward.
