In terms of international investment markets the African continent represents huge potential for a number of sectors. As such, Gravis Insights Australia will have an ever growing focus on the continent; not only in terms of helping African nations and businesses seek out new opportunities inbound to Australasia but also to assist outbound investors looking to Africa for opportunities.
As many of our clients know, we are specialists in terms of multicultural engagement and from there derives our connections in the global investment space.
For us at Gravis Insights Australia, we firmly believe that global investment is about two way exchanges of capital and intellectual property. Too often is there a narrow focus on either the inbound nature of investment or the outbound nature of trade but rarely both considered in a dynamic way; here at Gravis Insights Australia - we think a little differently about global investment strategies.
It is to this end that we are proud to announce two new members of our team and how their entrance into our team develops our long term vision for Gravis Global Invest.
We would like to introduce to the team Mr Bobby Whitfield. Bobby is a Queensland Multicultural Ambassador from 2013 and was the first ever person to receive this prestigious award from the Queensland Government Department of Multicultural Affairs under the Ministerial guidance of former LNP Minister for Multicultural Affairs, Glen Elmes.
We look forward to working with Bobby on delivering international investment and trade deals from countries such as Liberia, Guinea, Cote d'Ivoire and other West African nations.
Secondly, we would like to introduce Leila Abukar to the team. Leila is a long term friend of our team at Gravis Insights Australia. We assisted her and raised money for her failed bid for Yeerongpilly in the Queensland Election of 2015. Leila is now doing some great work for our good friends over at Access Community Services. Leila holds significant connections in places such as Somalia, Djibouti, Mozambique, Ethiopia and Kenya.
Our Gravis Global Invest team continues to expand and this next stage delivers the full range of expertise and knowledge to help facilitate new deals between African nations and international investment interests. Furthermore, we will even be exploring the partnering of products and services from a number of African nations into the Pacific and into Asia.
With Leila and Bobby's business and political connections on the continent, we know that these two wonderful additions to our team will deliver real results for our clients in Australia and abroad.
