The German African Business Summit (GABS) is Germany’s signature business event in Africa

At the GABS, top business and government leaders from Germany and Sub-Saharan Africa meet every two years in Africa to discuss and promote economic relations between Europe’s largest economy and the fastest-growing region in the world. The GABS is organized by the Sub-Saharan Africa Initiative of German Business (SAFRI) and chaired by the SAFRI Chairman, Prof. Dr. Heinz-Walter Große, Chairman of the Board of B. Braun Melsungen AG.

The GABS 2019 took place from 11 to 13 February 2019 in Accra. GABS 2019 attracted more than 650 participants from 25 countries. This new record of participation proves the acceptance of the event as Germany’s signature business event in Africa. GABS 2019 was truly a space where German and African business interests met, where economic partnerships between Germany and Sub-Saharan Africa were strengthened, and where business trends and market opportunities were explored.

The next edition of GABS will take place in 2021, date and time will be announced one year prior to the summit.
