The growth of mobile phones and services across Africa has brought many Africans into the digital age and connected them to the internet. With one of the world’s fastest-growing middle classes, Africa has seen multiple opportunities emerge for both local and global retailers from this digital growth. Fintech continues to grow and develop, with M-Pesa still dominating the sector. Banks are becoming involved, as they run the danger of being disintermediated should they not. Various countries have taken active steps to ensure their citizens have access to the internet at an affordable rate to transform their agrarian, lower-income economies into one that is both knowledge-based and middle-income. 

E-commerce represents a small, but rapidly growing segment of the African retail market. The growing popularity of online shopping is driven by increasing internet access and smartphone ownership, busy lifestyles, a preference for convenience, nightmare traffic jams, bad roads, and a lack of parking. Digital marketing and social media is also growing strongly in Africa, supporting the e-commerce trend.

It is in this environment that e-commerce giant, Jumia, has succeeded in positioning itself as the leading e-commerce company in Africa. It has succeeded not only in Nigeria, but has expanded into various other regions in Africa. The CEO of Jumia Nigeria, Ms Juliet Anammah, will be talking about the growth of e-commerce in Africa. 

Attendees can expect to:

  • Learn about Jumia – the African e-Commerce platform for Singapore companies to leverage on for entering the African market
  • Be briefed about the terms and services of Jumia’s e-Commerce platform and support required for international vendors
  • Network with Jumia representatives interested in direct selling to the Africa market through Jumia’s e-Commerce platform
  • Explore B2B partnerships to value-add to the platform and end-to-end fulfilment of orders
