Aliko Dangote to Discuss ‘Doing Business in Africa’ in Oxford


Dangote in Oxford_incl link_vf

The University of Oxford is hosting Aliko Dangote, the world’s richest black man and Africa’s most well-known industrialist tomorrow, 16 February 2016.

In particular, the Oxford University Africa Society and the Oxford University China-Africa Network (OUCAN) are hosting him in a conversation entitled “The Truth about Doing Business in Africa” at 1.20pm. My colleague Yasmin Kumi, President of the Africa Society and myself, as co-convenor of the China-Africa Network will discuss with him his experiences of doing business in Africa

Although the event is restricted to students, researchers and academics in the university, who pre-registered, you can engage in the conversation with the hashtag #DangoteInOxford. A video will also be made publicly available online subsequently.

  1. I hope it will be a wonderful event. With you as one of the hosts, it should be! I look forward to video, and will try to follow on Twitter but have choir practice at Unitarian Church tomorrow evening.

  2. Nice one. I’m sure he would be open to being a guest in such a conversation hosted by a Nigerian university. I don’t know why there hasn’t been any notable conversation with him or anything similar here. Generally, its a good one. Thank you for the heads up.
