Nairobi Trade and Business Forum
The Voice of Business in Trade Policy
The Nairobi Trade and Business Forum (NTBF) provides a platform for closer engagement between businesses and policy makers. It offers a specially tailored forum for businesses, decision makers and experts nationally, regionally and globally to identify and examine the most critical issues, find new perspectives and build alliances.
Trade policy has changed significantly over the last decade and the gap is widening between the realities of the business world and the aspirations of the policy world. The forum will engage business leaders constructively and purposefully in a dialogue with policymakers on current issues to bring the trade process forward.
The forum will feature dedicated sessions on two central themes:
Policy Solutions for Businesses Policy issues for businesses will be examined and debated with the aim of engaging business in trade policy and generating sustainable solutions.
African Business: Regional and Global Impact National, regional and international stakeholders in the African business community will come together with policy makers and civil society to discuss the issues and design a forward-looking agenda.
