We are announcing 27 deals worth over 6.5bn pounds from
across the African markets invited to this Summit and we are aware of further
UK commercial investment into Africa that will be committed at the Summit.
The diverse and fast-growing economies of Africa offer
huge potential to UK business. Over 36 billion pounds worth of trade is already
happening between the UK and Africa. The deals today show how we are building

to clean growth make the UK and Africa natural partners for prosperity.
