The African Chamber of Commerce

Welcome to the African Chamber of Commerce Scandinavia (ACCS).
The African Chamber of Commerce Scandinavia is an organization whose interest is to build a partnership between African governments, businesses, public & private institutions, as well as create a strong network in each Scandinavian country.
ACCS is committed to promoting sustainable business and investment in Africa. We believe that the private sector is vital to bringing real development and sustainable projects to the continent. All our efforts are geared towards increasing trade and investment opportunities and maximizing growth between the two entities.
ACCS believes that capacity building and knowledge transfer between Scandinavia and Africa is the driving engine for prosperity and eventually harmony in the African continent. Thus we regard our services as a metaphorical vehicle that provides a platform for facilitating partnerships, collaboration and networking between Africa and Scandinavia.

Africa has an enormous potential, not only to feed itself and eliminate hunger and food insecurity, but also to be a major player in the industry.

Unfortunately agricultural productivity is dropping in sub-Saharan Africa. For example, per capita agricultural production fell by about 5% over the last 20 years while increasing by 40% in other developing countries. This is largely due to:

  • Poor access to international markets.
  • Lack of technical know-how, training and extension services.
  • Lack of private sector services and investment to fill the vacuum left behind.

ACCS bridges that problem by bringing our consultants and business partners to provide that service.

More than a century after the light bulb was invented most of the African continent is still in the dark after nightfall.
The need for energy and its use varies widely in Africa however the development of new technologies for
generating energy is in demand in the continent. ACCS has a network of Scandinavian professionals
who excel in this field and through the years we have matched them up with the right partners and sectors in Africa.

Investment in infrastructure projects forms a key part of ACCS’ organisational strategy.
Through our competent partners ACCS delivers landmark projects with high direct and indirect impact on the less privileged.

A lot of countries in Africa are discovering that they have oil reserves and as time progresses
Africa will need experts in this field. At ACCS oil and gas are our top priority,
hence our consultants and management are committed to facilitating the implementation
of sustainable and long-term solutions for our clients including the society involved in the oil and gas industry.
