1st EDITION OF THE INTRA-AFRICAN COMMERCIAL FAIR
From 11/12/2018 to 17/12/2018 at 00:00
In order to boost intra-African trade and support the implementation of the African Continental Free Trade Area ("ZLECA"), the African Export Import Bank (AFREXIMBANK) is organizing, in collaboration with the African Union, the 1st edition of the Intra-African Trade Fair "IATF 2018", which will be held from 11 to 17 December 2018 at the Cairo International Exhibition Center in Cairo, under the theme "Transforming Africa".
The Intra-African Trade Fair is the first of its kind to be organized on the African continent. It is a 7-day trade fair that provides a platform for information sharing on trade, investment and the market to enable buyers and sellers, investors and countries to join, to discuss and conclude trade agreements.
The IATF, which represented a major collaborative effort between the African Union and the African Export-Import Bank (Afreximbank), is an important step towards achieving the objectives of the Continental African Free Trade Area "ZLECA" . This fair is being organized for its first edition in Cairo following the signing of the hosting agreement between Afreximbank, the African Union and the Government of Egypt on the sidelines of the African Union Summit in Kigali.
The IATF, which will be a biennial event, is expected to bring together more than 1,000 exhibitors from across Africa and beyond, and could attract more than 70,000 visitors, generating more than $ 70 billion in trade deals, enabling entry into a single market of more than one billion people united by the African Continental Free Trade Area.
