Egypt to host Intra-African Trade Fair

Egypt will host the first ever Intra-African Trade Fair (IATF) from 11-17 December 2018, which is being convened by the African Export-Import Bank in collaboration with the African Union. The Intra-African Trade Initiative has invited Malawi to participate in the inaugural African Trade Fair and to consider submitting a proposal to bid for the IATF Country Day Programme. “The fair which has been themed “Transforming Africa”, is the first of its kind in the continent. It is intended to provide a unique platform for promoting Intra-African trade and facilitating information exchange in support of increased intra-African trade,” The fair which was launched in 2018 at the 10th Extra-Ordinary Summit of the African Union seeks to solidify implementation of the recently signed African Continental Free Trade Area (AFCFTA)
