Online edition FAB Forum: December 2020

Since it was not possible to organise a physical FAB Forum in 2020, we decided to integrate workshops and round tables about Francophone countries in the Digital Africa Business Days, that is organised by the Netherlands-African Business Council on December 15th and 16th, 2020. Register via

Francophone Africa Business Forum

The 5th edition of the Francophone Africa Business Forum (FAB Forum), took place on October 15th in Utrecht. The FAB Forum is the perfect opportunity to meet more than 100 entrepreneurs from Mali, Niger, Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire and the Democratic Republic of Congo, all in a single day! 

The Francophone African region offers myriad business opportunities for companies that are interested in discovering new and emerging markets.

Agritech, Climate Smart and Circular Agriculture

Experts will share their insights in the fields of agritechnology, climate smart agriculture and circular agriculture, during the plenary programme and in-depth workshops. There are also plenty of networking moments.


The FAB Forum is commissioned by the Kingdom of the Netherlands and encourages Private Sector Development (PSD) in the Sahel region and in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The FAB Forum is all about partnerships between Dutch companies and their African counterparts: sustainable partnerships with equal benefits.
