Initiatives are maintained by Aktif Bank across Africa

Aktif Bank, as the first Turkish bank to be the sponsor of the Africa Investment Forum, has traveled 175 thousand kilometers long for its activities in Africa, and entered into cooperation with 220 banks in the last two years. During the event held in Johannesburg between November 11-13 and hosted by the African Development Bank, we discussed the chances of entering into trade, investment and partnership relations with the African countries.

Handling the investment and business opportunities across the continent of Africa together with the leading industrial players, the African Investment Forum was held in Johannesburg for the second time this year. Well known for its intense foreign trade activities across Africa, Aktif Bank became the first Turkish bank to provide support to this event. During the event which brings together all investors, banks and intermediary institutions to analyze the economic transformation of Africa in detail, Aktif Bank took the opportunity of promoting its extensive service network developed exclusively for the continent.

Mr. Utku: "We have traveled 175 thousand kilometers long for our activities in Africa and entered into cooperation with 220 banks."

Sharing his opinions, Muzaffer Suat Utku, Executive Vice President, Financial Institutions at Aktif Bank, said: "We are proud of becoming the first Turkish bank to provide support to this event which tests the pulse of the economy across Africa. We are carrying out international banking activities with 220 banks in 54 countries across Africa, and providing substantial contributions to development of the foreign trade volume between Turkey-Africa. Throughout 2018 and 2019, we have traveled around 175 thousand kilometers long across Africa, which is equal to traveling around the equator for almost 4.5 times.  We offer our clients the opportunity of performing transactions reliably thanks to all this experience we have gained, and our intelligence network we have developed so far. With this event, we aim to come together our stakeholders in Africa, and to maintain all our investments across the continent in the most efficient manner."
