AfBC organises events and runs a number of campaigns aimed at empowering and supporting the organisation, its members and the business community around the United Kingdom to accelerate growth, enhance productivity, access new opportunities, showcase products and solutions, and highlight the needs of African businesses.
Our aspiration is to be the voice and advocate for the African business communities across United Kingdom, by representing their views, interests and priorities to government and in the media.
