ADF International

Are you interested in doing business with Africa & the Caribbean? Interested in buying, selling or even looking at investment opportunities?

Would you like to join our ADF International Network?

Business is an essential strand of our ADF online digital platform. We are building our local and international networks to support companies to do business with Africa & the Caribbean.

Trade links between the UK and the Caribbean & Africa are centuries old. While relationships have changed over the years, the same mutual interests and opportunities for bilateral trade are as vital today as they have always been.

Using our expertise and market networks, ADF International has put together a range of practical support to help you develop new markets.

  • Each month, we will feature an African or Caribbean market on our digital platform, highlighting opportunities in those markets
  • Every quarter, we will hold an international networking event where you can learn more about opportunities and from other businesses already traded there.
  • Individual business support will help you to ascertain whether there is a market for your products/services
  • Once you have established a market, we will help you find business partners in those markets to help you sell your products/services.
  • Once we have identified potential business partners, we will arrange meetings for you virtually or in the market.  And will make sure that we carry out due diligence to ensure that you have a genuine partner
  • If you visit the country, we will provide visa support (if required), make sure that you are fully briefed on doing business in that market with practical information to make sure that the visit runs smoothly and plan
  • And if you have any issues with business communication, we can help to support you with this through our in-market networks
