About BOS

The African Development Bank (the Bank) is organizing a Business Opportunity Seminar (BOS) from November 22 to 23, 2018, in Pretoria, South Africa.
BOSs are one-stop fora for consultants, contractors, manufacturers, and suppliers from the Bank Group’s member countries looking to provide goods and services to AfDB Group projects in Africa. BOSs help strengthen the relationship between the AfDB and its shareholders and the private sector. Participants will be introduced to the AfDB priority sectors, referred to as the Bank’s High 5s, namely: Feed Africa (agriculture), Light up & Power Africa (energy), Integrate Africa (transport and infrastructure), Industrialize Africa (private sector development) and Improve the Quality of Life of the People of Africa (water and sanitation, and human development).
The BOS is intended for participants to:
  • Learn about the Bank Group’s strategic direction, perational priorities, project pipeline andongoing sovereign and non-sovereign operations;
  • Hear about the Bank Group’s financial products and instruments;
  • Meet with Bank Group’s sector and regional specialists;
  • Network with other consulting firms and equipment suppliers in non-regional and regional member countries ofthe Bank Group;
  • Learn the qualification criteria for Bank-financed contracts; and
  • Discover business opportunities in Africa.
