AOBEEC’s purpose is threefold:

  1. To be a trusted partner: We aim to be the trusted partner for African and non-African entities interested in exploring business opportunities within and outside Africa.

  2. To promote capacity development: We will support the development of Africa’s technical capacity and productivity in the blue economy, maritime, shipping, energy and agri-business sectors.

  3. To facilitate high-level dialogues on the blue economy: We will collaborate with global partners to create and support meeting platforms where Africa’s policy makers and business executives can interact with their global counterparts to address the development of the continent’s blue economy, maritime and energy sectors.
