The Embassy of the Kingdom of Lesotho in Dublin once again took part in the Africa-Ireland Economic Forum (AIEF) and the Norwegian African Business Summit (NABA) in Ireland and Norway respectively on the 30 October 2014. One of the primary objectives of the two events was to promote trade relations between African countries and the host countries. The AIEF was officially opened by the Minister of State for Development, Trade Promotion and North South Co-operation Mr. Seán Sherlock, TD while the keynote address at the NABA was delivered by the Norwegian Minister of Foreign Affairs Mr. Børge Brende.
During their speeches, both Ministers acknowledged the positive relations and growing trade links between their countries and Africa. Most importantly, they challenged the participants to change their perceptions about Africa and to take advantage of available opportunities in the continent for their benefit and for the benefit of Africa.
