At the launch event held on the 6th of November in Cape Town, the Africa Scotland Business Network recreated a little piece of Scotland in Africa, welcoming over 150 business leaders, government and diplomats from 10 different countries. Our gracious host, Bowmans, provided the perfect venue for this auspicious occasion. We were delighted to have representatives from WESGRO as well as Scottish Development International speak at the launch and touch on how they view the importance and relevance of the network in their own arenas. Of course it wouldn’t be a Scottish event without the legendary The Drums and Pipes of There Cape Town Highlanders wowing the audience with their stunning blend of African drums and Scottish bagpipes and drums.
The next step is to host the first members’ events in Africa next month and excitingly launch in Scotland in the first quarter of 2020.
