February 07, 2022

DAI is pleased to participate in the 7th EU-Africa Business Forum, taking place online from February 14–18. The forum brings together African and European Union (EU) business leaders and political decision-makers to discuss the investment climate and increase economic partnership opportunities between the EU and Africa. The forum will be followed by the EU-Africa Summit on February 17–18.

On February 14, from 10 to 10:45 am CET, Bhairav Raja, Director of Responsible Business at DAI’s Sustainable Business Group, will contribute to a workshop on circularity in African Union-EU fashion and apparel trade and investments, organized by the European Centre for Development Policy Management and Msingi. The workshop will feature a public-private dialogue on how to promote an inclusive circular economy transition in textiles in Africa and Europe. It will provide a platform to showcase examples of innovative circular approaches and partnerships in Europe and Africa and explore ways to support that through effective policies.
