AFR-IX Telecom joins the first EU-NIGER Business Forum

Under the high patronage of the President of the Republic of Niger, the government of Niger and the European Union are co-organising the first EU-NIGER Business Forum 2023 which is taking place on 7 and 8 February in Niamey. This major event is joining more than 1.000 Nigerien, European and sub-regional companies, economic decision-makers, politicians and investment experts. 

This Business Forum organised at the Mahatma Gandhi International Conference Centre, is taking place on 7 and 8 February in Niamey. It will be an opportunity to share strategies, policies and investment opportunities in Niger, by mobilising investors and political figures from the EU and Niger.  During this regional forum, exchanges will focus on priority themes such as agriculture, livestock, renewable energy, new technologies, infrastructure, mining/oil and crafts.

The EU-NIGER 2023 Business Forum will bring together inspiring personalities over the two days congress.

Norman Albi, CEO of AFR-IX telecom, is participating at the panel “Opportunités d’Investissement dans le domain des Nouvelles technologies de l’information et de la communication » together with other leaders from Webb Fontaine Niger, l’Association Fintech, l’Agence Nationale pour la Société de l’Information, l’Autorité de Régulation des Communications Électroniques et de la Poste (ARCEP) and Ministre de la Poste et des Nouvelles Technologies de l’Information.

According to Norman, Niger is in a transformation and this opportunity can’t be miss. Niger is in a perfect location between 2 of the largest markets in Africa: Nigeria and Algeria, which count about 20 and 22% of the traffic in Africa.   This is good and challenging. Having fiber optic interconnecting those countries is a must.

AFR-IX telecom opened its office in Niger two years ago with the conviction to strength all the fields of value creation in Niger in order to consolidate trade, boost economic growth and create jobs for the youth tomorrow.

Africa is at the heart of tomorrow’s global recovery.
