85 years in the service of German-African economic relationsThe Afrika-Verein der deutschen Wirtschaft (AV) is the national, cross-sector foreign trade association of German companies and institutions interested in economic cooperation with the countries of the African continent. As an excellently networked link, it promotes exchange between German and African representatives from business and politics. We are committed to a new image of Africa in Germany: Africa as a continent of opportunity.


For a differentiated image of Africa and an opportunity-oriented policyThe association informs about countries and markets in Africa, establishes contacts and represents the interests of its members at home and abroad. The more than 550 members are provided with an extensive range of services which they can fall back on at any time. Through a close network of contacts in Africa, the Afrika-Verein der deutschen Wirtschaft feels the pulse of the markets. The members thus hear promptly and specifically about new developments and business opportunities.
We are driven by the desire to draw the attention of even more companies to the continent’s concrete opportunities and to help them enter the markets. We have always had a special focus on medium-sized companies – and will continue to do so in the future!
