First Intra-Africa Trade Fair Brings Hope to African Business

The first Intra-Africa Trade Fair was held with great fanfare in Cairo, spearheaded by African Export-Import Bank, a multilateral financial institution that finances and promotes intra and extra African trade. "We need initiatives that will catalyse a strong production or industrial base for production of export manufacturing initiatives that will improve our knowledge of, and access to, trade and investment information and initiatives that will facilitate movement of goods across borders in competitive terms," Afreximbank President Benedict Oramah said in his opening address.
