Networking for growth in East Africa
Community Coordinator

Improved governance, responsive regulatory measures and a stronger infrastructure is creating opportunities for savvy investors who are prepared to make long-term business commitments within East Africa. So, we invited 70 Standard Bank Group clients who have an interest in this region to the East Africa Trans-Regional Conference in Nairobi, Kenya.


This is giving them the chance to network for three days in a guided and informative environment. We selected business clients from Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, Malawi and South Africa. They are getting an overview of commerce and industry in East Africa, and hearing about opportunities for access to the market and business development from local specialists.


This is the first of a series of inter-Africa trade conferences aimed at facilitating business development. The event underlines our commitment to create effective partnerships for our clients in the region and across the continent and is a way for us to add additional value for business banking clients by assisting them to identify services they could access, match them with much needed expertise and provide financing solutions.  


The conference line-up includes esteemed speakers such as: Carole Kariuki, CEO of the Kenya Private Sector Alliance (KEPSA); Dr. Ndiragu Kibata, Strategies Group Head at TAUSPCE; and Jibran Qureishi, Standard Bank Group's Economist for East Africa region.
