The connection between Africa and Europe

ABE was started in 2017 as a hard copy magazine distributed at selected events in Europe and Africa but quickly gained traction thereby making it necessary to re-strategize to reach a wider audience. It has since evolved to become a purely on-line magazine accessible by readers all over the world.



At African Business Exchange, we recognise the dynamic nature of the business Environment and we do everything possible in order to meet the needs of our esteemed customers by constantly adjusting to the ever changing business environment.  We do this through periodic updates and by always researching for the best practices and most innovative ways to deliver services to our clients.


We provide solutions to businesses that are interested in exploring various opportunities in Africa with the intention of establishing their businesses or finding the right partners to work with in their countries of interest. To do this we have partnered with various Ministries, Chambers of Commerce and other government institutions to help drive their agenda of attracting investments and promoting exports in various countries of interest.



We also work with many of the associations and cooperatives in various countries assisting them to find partners and markets for their products as well as to source for machinery required for their businesses .

The Team

ABE boasts a strong team of experts and writers with an average of 10 years industry experience in journalism, the majority being economists with a wealth of knowledge of the African economy and its impact on the world economy.
