SSACC welcomes you to join us at the MEA Summit hosted and organized by our sister organization in #TeamSweden, Business Sweden

26 Sep – 27 Sep
Hotel At Six, Brunkebergstorg 6, Stockholm

MEA Summit is Sweden’s largest business event geared towards the MEA region, delivering insights, tools and clues as to how market transformation in the region will place future demands on business innovation. During two days in Stockholm, you will engage in presentations from world-renowned speakers, panel discussions and interactive workshops with top executives and industry experts as well as meet with an estimated 200 other Swedish companies who share your interest in the region.

Day 1: Middle East and Northern Africa
A region in conflict and dynamic transformation, driven forward by innovation-led growth. Economic reconfigurations and ways of dealing with youth unemployment are some of the subjects debated by principal figures in the business and political scene of the MENA region during Day 1. Considering current efforts for political and economic change and increased competition in the region, MEA Summit provides you with a collaborative platform for discussing the future of the Middle East and North Africa. How can you strengthen your competitiveness in a region in change?

Day 2: Sub Saharan Africa
As growth is slowing down in many more developed markets, six out of the ten fastest growing economies in the world are located on the African continent. Stakes are high, and so is the potential for returns. Growing cities, a bulging middle class hungry for inclusion and more sophisticated consumer demands are some of topics discussed by leaders in African business development during this day. Take this opportunity to expand your network and boost your business in the Middle East and Africa!

Namibia Renewable Energy & Power Infrastructure Investor Conference 2017

Hydropower dominates Namibia generation mix so far. This is set to continue in the future with hydropower contributing at least 70% to the country power generation mix in 2025. This power source is however highly dependent on water flow and, as such, diversification is key in order to be able to deliver a stable supply of electricity from domestic sources.

Namibia has indeed great potential for wind and solar energy and has plans to leverage these technologies as part of its energy supply going forward. The renewable sector is still at an early stage of development but given the political commitment and technical potential, it will keep gaining traction in the near future.

The Power Sector in Namibia has undertaken a number of reforms aimed at attracting IPPs by providing a stable investment environment. Such reforms include the establishment of transparent tariff setting procedures, overseen by the sector regulator, the Electricity Control Board.

As to power transmission and distribution, the grids infrastructure need improvement in order to permit the balancing of power and thus the development of the renewable energy sector in general. In an effort to address this challenge of the Power Value Chain, NamPower has developed a Transmission Master Plan to ensure that the evolving electricity needs of the country and network expansions are executed accordingly.

You and your colleagues are welcome to join the Namibia Renewable Energy & Power Infrastructure Investor Conference 2017 taking place on July 6th in Windhoek
