Read our input to the Danish Government´s Africa Plan

The new geopolitical and economic situation in the world is reshaping political priorities, national alliances and diplomatic connections. In the EU and the Nordics, this has led to increasing focus on the value of cross-continental cooperation and renewed partnership with countries in, especially, Africa.

Currently, the Danish government’s Africa Plan is awaited, expected to be agreed in 2024, and already the roll-back of the closure of the Danish embassy in Tanzania has been announced. In this connection, Nordic-African Consultancy has drawn up our recommendations for the coming Africa Plan. You can request our recommandations by emailing:

Our history in a few numbers

  • 140+ seminars on doing business in Africa
  • 15+ delegations to African markets
  • Operations in 4 Nordic countries
  • 1 African office
  • Worked with 200+ members
  • … In 30+ African markets

Nordic-African Consultancy began its story in 2003. As the untapped potential and emerging business opportunities across the African continent had become too vast to ignore, the boutique consultancy company Nordekon was founded with the objective of guiding Nordic companies on their business trajectories towards Africa. During these early years, AFRICA INNOVATION NETWORK®, a leading private professional network for business interests in Africa, was launched in 2011. Likewise, we published the first Scandinavian magazine dedicated entirely to gathering inspiring business cases and  showcasing innovative approaches adopted by Scandinavian companies that had taken the leap and begun their African business adventures. 

Later, in 2018, as Nordic-African business relations had advanced and matured even further, company activities were increasingly focused on building a foundation of cross-continental and cross-sectoral business connections for the future through network facilitation, development of sectoral clusters and organisation of delegations –  in Africa and the Nordics alike. This spurred a merger of all initiatives under the AFRICA INNOVATION NETWORK® name.

In 2023, as the company emerged from years marked by a pandemic, geopolitical change and ensuing global socio-political shocks, we updated our corporate identity as Nordic-African Consultancy and relaunched all flagship company activities under separate brands. You can find additional information about our professional network, AFRICA INNOVATION NETWORK ® and our Nordic business clusters here, or learn more about our relaunched business magasine africa business insight here. We welcome new members and cases.
