UK Ambitious Trade Visit to Nigeria Kenya and South Africa

UK Prime Minister Theresa May will lead an ambitious trip to Nigeria, Kenya and South Africa this week on her first visit to Africa as Prime Minister.

The Prime Minister will meet with: President Cyril Ramaphosa in Cape Town in South Africa; President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja; and President Uhuru Kenyatta in Nairobi.

Her visit comes at a time of enormous change with the UK’s move towards Brexit. The visit will present a great opportunity for the UK, Nigeria, Kenya and South Africa to work together for mutual benefit.

The focus of this visit will be on a renewed partnership between the UK and Africa and the opportunity to maximise shared opportunities and tackle common economic challenges in these countries.

Theresa May will also meet with young people and business leaders to help support the next generation of energetic, ambitious young Africans as they build a more prosperous continent in the years ahead.

To meet the growing needs of the African population (currently at 16 percent of the world’s population and growing with FDI currently at 3 percent and global goods trade of 3 percent), this visit should emphasise the benefits of trade and not aid inorder to increase FDI and global goods trade, secure the prosperity, stability, jobs and growth of Nigeria, Kenya, South Africa and other rapidly growing economies across Africa so as to help reduce conflict, poor work prospects, economic instability, insecurity, dangers of migration and modern slavery.

According to the Prime Minister Theresa May:

Africa stands right on the cusp of playing a transformative role in the global economy, and as longstanding partners this trip is a unique opportunity at a unique time for the UK to set out our ambition to work even closer together.

A more prosperous, growing and trading Africa…and its incredible potential will only be realised through a concerted partnership between governments, global institutions and business.

As we prepare to leave the EU, now is the time for the UK to deepen and strengthen its global partnerships.

This week I am looking forward to discussing how we can do that alongside Africa to help deliver important investment and jobs as well as continue to work together to maintain stability and security.

I am proud to be leading this ambitious trip to Africa.

The UK Prime Minister will be joined by a business delegation made up of 29 representatives from UK business, including SMEs from across all regions of the UK and its devolved administrations, showing the breadth and depth of British expertise in technology, infrastructure, financial and professional services.

Delegates include the London Stock Exchange; Sure Chill, a Cardiff-based cooling technology firm; Northumbria Energy, a solar tech provider; Farm.ink, a London based mobile tech start-up; Devenish Nutrition, a Northern Irish agri-tech company; Scotch Whisky Association; and JCB, the Midlands manufacturing company.

Also travelling are the Trade Minister George Hollingbery; Minister for Africa Harriett Baldwin; Secretary of State for Wales Alun Cairns; and the Lord Mayor of London Charles Bowman.

Looking forward to the outcome of this August and ambitious UK🇬🇧trilateral trade trip🇳🇬🇰🇪🇿🇦💪🏾🙎🏾♀
