Home/Potential and Challenge: Doing Business with Africa
The corona virus pandemic is weighing on us all now – personally and professionally. The LocWorld team is well and we hope you are, also.
Regarding LocWorld42 in Berlin, we are in negotiations with our conference venue, the InterContinental Berlin, and are forced to wait for further developments in Germany before we can make a definitive announcement. Meanwhile, we are investigating opportunities for a virtual and safely-distant way to get together, network and learn. We promise to let you know more as soon as we can. We ask for your patience and understanding.

Not only thanks to its natural resources has Africa become an interesting export market for international investors and mining companies. However, governance and cultural aspects make it a challenging place to do business. Language service providers may not only be required to translate into a range of African languages but also to advise on tenders and communication strategies to bridge the cultural gap. A fascinating, colorful place with a promising future and considerable potential, yet daunting for many exporters, this presentation will give you a brief snapshot of Africa and pointers on doing business for those who are just starting.
