Lomé, African capital of the blue economy from 26 to 28 September – Lomé will be hosting the 2023 edition of Maritimafrica Week from 26 to 28 September. The event will be held under the theme of “putting the blue economy at the service of Africa’s development”, and will bring together key players in the blue economy in Africa and their partners in other parts of the world to discuss the major issues and challenges facing the maritime sector.
The event will feature an exhibition, conferences and seminars (face-to-face and virtual), tours of Togo’s maritime infrastructure and blue economy, and B-to-B meetings.
According to the organisers, the discussions should lead to measures to strengthen coastal protection for a sustainable future, and to the empowerment of women for a flourishing blue economy in Africa. The opportunities, challenges and sustainable solutions for the future of the maritime sector will also be discussed.
“These panels provide an opportunity to present and share best practices with a targeted audience in Togo, Africa and the world. This will help to highlight actions, promote activities and services, while strengthening credibility in the sector”, say the organisers.
In addition to exchanges, this first edition of “Maritimafrica Week” is committed to strengthening networking and providing access to new business opportunities.
Maritimafrica Week is an initiative of Maritimafrica, a bilingual (French/English) press group dedicated to the maritime sector in Africa.
