Africa is the world’s next big growth market. Home to a market of more than 1.3 billion people and a combined GDP of U.S.$3.4 trillion, Africa is resource-rich, has a youthful and eager workforce and some of the world’s fastest-growing consumer markets. In an era of slowing growth, Africa continues to promise long-term growth and business opportunities across multiple sectors.
Africa is also transforming itself for the future, diversifying into new industries to reduce the region’s vulnerability to commodity boom-bust cycles. A surplus of workers, more stability and adoption of new technologies are transforming Africa’s economies, spurring new areas of growth and opportunities. Business conditions in many African states have also improved significantly to encourage greater foreign direct investment.
At this FYIstival, join our invited experts and panel of business leaders from Africa and Singapore to learn about the latest market developments and emerging trends across different regions of Africa and how Singaporean companies can succeed in this growing and rapidly evolving continent.

Recent data from the World Bank indicates that today’s global food system is highly complex and interconnected, with over 90% of food products exported from the points of origin. More than half of the world’s population is expected to rely in food sourced from other countries by the year 2050.
In Singapore, the Singapore Food Agency (“SFA”) said that 90% of the food consumed is imported, in 2021, with a good majority from 8 countries. Diversified food sources can therefore add to the resilience of Singapore’s food supply, and Pakistan can be potentially accretive to this diversification strategy.
In 2021, Pakistan exported USD35 billion worth of products worldwide and 17.4% was food products, including Singapore. What are on our plates today, and what else can Singapore food merchants’ source from Pakistan? On the other hand, what are Pakistani palates like, and what can Singapore food merchants’ interest Pakistani consumers with? What are the regulatory frameworks that Singapore and Pakistan companies need to contend with?
