Women doing Business in Africa, Promoting African Regional Integration


“Reinforcing business linkages between women”

In our aim to promote African Regional Intergration and reinforce business linkages between women on the continent, LWA has created a programme: Women Doing Business in Africa. This programme represents series of business seminars and trade missions, organised by Leading Women of Africa (LWA) in different African countries, which bring together women entrepreneurs and business leaders that have Africa as part of their growth strategy, in order to access trade and investment opportunities on the continent.

It is expected that this Trade Mission will incorporate government officials, development stakeholders as well as policy makers from the region.

These seminars will target women involved in investment, trade, service and infrastructure development projects on the continent.
