About GABF

The Germany Africa Business Forum (GABF) is a private think tank whose goal is to strengthen investment ties between Germany and Africa.

Founded in 2017 as a “private for privates”, the GABF encourages German investors to consider the African continent as a profitable and important investment destination. Through a series of initiatives, the GABF draws together African business and political leaders with Germany’s preeminent companies and investors to develop fresh investment concepts that shape German and African business ties, as well as economic thought.

Our international team, based in Berlin and Johannesburg, works as an advocacy organization that supports institutions and corporates to enhance their partnerships and expand their businesses in Africa.

Within our network, we develop innovative concepts to strengthen the African cause in Germany.
