What the IATF2020 has to offer?

The IATF provides a platform for entry into a single market of over one billion people joined together by the African Continental Free Trade Area.

The objectives of the Intra-African Trade Fair include the following:

  • To bring together continental and global players to showcase and exhibit their goods and services, explore business and investment opportunities in Africa;
  • To serve as a marketplace where buyers and sellers of goods and services meet and explore business opportunities;
  • To provide a platform for Business to Business (B2B)/Business to Government (B2G) exchanges, match-making and development of business and investment opportunities
  • To share trade, investment and market information with various stakeholders including investors, SMEs, the informal sector, Africans in Diaspora, and identify solutions to address the challenges affecting intra-African trade;
  • For Afreximbank as well as other financial institutions to share information about their trade finance and trade facilitation interventions that will support intra-African trade;
  • To discuss topical issues affecting intra-African trade and provide practical and effective solutions; and
  • To deploy multi-country and multi company pavilions that will serve as one-stop shop for intra-African trade and investment opportunities in Africa.
