ou are invited to attend our annual flagship African Diaspora and Development Day (AD3) event.
Our 2019 theme ‘Remittances to Infrastructural Financing’ will explore different forms of financial instruments that could be created and harnessed to maximise African diaspora investment for development.
Now in its 19th year, AD3 is recognized as an agenda setting space, bringing together leaders and influencers from the African diaspora community and policymakers, to learn, share and enhance the prospects for investments into key African sectors. It also serves as a platform for influential African voices to inform and mobilise these audiences in the UK for significant action.
AFFORD would like to invite you to attend, benefit from our experienced speakers and network with like minded people.
