NABC is the leading organization for trade and investment facilitation for Africa based in The Netherlands. NABC informs, inspires, catalyses and connects businesses with African opportunities. NABC is a networking community of SMEs and multi-nationals with a common interest of doing business in Africa. We implement high-level Africa focused trade and investment facilitation activities such as trade missions, market studies, organize buying and selling tours,events and sector programs. NABC primarily supports and facilitates businesses, with a focus on SMEs, but also serves other entities such as Governments, Embassies, Knowledge Institutes, NGO’s, Sector Associations among others keen supporting private sector and economic development. 

At the Netherlands-African Business Council (NABC) we believe that the Dutch private sector has a prominent role to play in the sustainable development of the African continent. Established in 1946, NABC has grown to an oganisation with over 300 Dutch companies ranging from large multinationals to small and medium sized companies and start-ups. Active in nearly every sector, NABC has amassed an extended network of thousands of African business contacts and enjoys collaborative relationships with Dutch knowledge institutions, NGO’s, the Dutch government, African embassies and trade and investment promotion institutes. This positions the NABC uniquely between the public and private sector, and ushers in a significant increase of bilateral trade and investment.

Our young and dynamic team connects Dutch companies with the tremendous economic opportunities Africa has to offer. With our extensive experience, knowledge and our elaborate network, we are in a unique position to support Dutch companies in creating and developing business on the African continent. The NABC is at the forefront of creating mutually beneficial relationships between the Netherlands and Africa that overtime we believe leads to sustainable economic development.

The NABC promotes commerce in Africa by providing Dutch companies with the tools they need to succeed in the various regions and markets across the continent. By hosting multiple events throughout the year, NABC is able to provide their members and associates with valuable networking opportunities that solidify new B2B and B2G relationships. The annual Ambassadors Dinner and the Africa Works! conference are prime examples of such events. In addition, NABC country and sector seminars, workshops and match-making sessions provide professionals with concrete opportunities to make relevant contacts in specific countries and/or sectors.

Over the last few years, NABC has hosted more than 60 trade missions in Africa and over 50 in the Netherlands. These missions are carried out to facilitate the exchange of both tangible and non-tangible assets between regional entrepreneurs. They allow both African and Dutch businesses to become familiar with the practices, strategies and technologies used in their respective regions, and often usher in fruitful business relationships. The NABC has extensive experience with trade missions to and from nearly every African nation, and because they often target multiple industries, they are profitable in multiple ways. Close cooperation between NABC, the Dutch embassies and other local agencies makes it possible for companies to begin or to further expand enterprises in Africa.

History of NABC

In 1946 Karel Paul van der Mandele, a famous Dutch banker from Rotterdam, established the Africa Institute together with his business and academic relations. Anticipating the changing political and economic landscape, the goal of the Africa Institute was to establish new economic relations with the soon-to-be independent African nations. After some years, the scientific part of the Institute moved to Leiden University, where it still resides as the African Studies Centre Leiden. The business portion of the African Institute continued its work and evolved to become the key organisation representing the business interests of Dutch companies in Africa.

The Institute was eventually rebranded as the Netherlands-African Business Council (NABC), and it continues to this day to be the leading network organisation providing the platform for enhancing business between the Netherlands and Africa.
