About BOSVenueArrangementsRegistration
The African Development Bank (AfDB) is conducting a Business Opportunities Seminar (BOS) on 20-22 June 2017 on AfDB financed projects. 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. Sectors to be covered are the Bank’s High 5 priorities, in particular, infrastructure (energy, transport), water and sanitation, agriculture and human development.
 
The two-day event will consist of a plenary session as well as one-one-one sessions to allow for more in-depth discussions on the various sectors, geographic distribution of projects etc.
 
Please refer to the draft agenda for further information.
 
Objectives
 
The BOS is intended for participants to:
  • Learn about the Bank Group’s strategic directions, operational priorities, project pipelines and ongoing sovereign and non-sovereign operations;
  • Hear about the Bank Group’s financial products and instruments;
  • Meet with Bank Group sector (and if requested, regional) specialists;
  • Meet with Bank Group staff in procurement, project management and related operations;
  • Network with other consulting firms and suppliers in non-regional and regional member countries of the Bank Group;
  • Listen to presentations on how to qualify for AfDB-financed contracts; and
  • Discover what business opportunities are available, and where across Africa.
We look forward to interacting with you at the BOS and hope you will help increase the pool of competent bidders and consultants who will contribute to the success of AfDB projects.
