Africa is recognized as the fastest growing continent after Asia. This market offers many prospects for Quebec-based companies.

On April 30, our guest experts will examine the specific characteristics of each of the continent’s sub-regions, as well as the business opportunities they offer.

You will also benefit from asking questions to our speakers, getting their advice, and speaking to them about the best development strategies to adopt.
