African Heads of Mission Meeting held in Edinburgh
Ambassador Hailemichael led an Embassy delegation from the Business and Public Diplomacy Departments at the 2018 African Heads of Mission meeting in Edinburgh from 19th to 21st September, which brought together 15 African Ambassadors and their trade and education attaches.
The main objective of the meeting was to promote opportunities to increase trade, investment and knowledge sharing between Scotland and Africa. The 3-day programme included sector-specific roundtables, focused seminars, private G2B meetings, and bi-lateral government meetings.
The programme included a range of sectors in which Scotland excels, and are considered priorities by many African Governments, such as renewable energy, education, oil and gas, and agriculture.
On 21st September the Scotland Africa Trade and Investment Meeting took place at the Edinburgh Business School at Heriot-Watt University.
On the sidelines of the meetings the Ambassador met with companies from a range of sectors such as Education, Renewable Energy, Agriculture, FinTech and more, to explore opportunities of mutual interest, including the upcoming UK-Ethiopia Trade and Investment Forum, to be held in London on 16th October.
The programme was organised by the Scotland Africa Business Exchange (SABE), an independent consultancy which aims to increase trade, investment and knowledge sharing between Scotland and Africa.
