First Intra-Africa Trade Fair Brings Hope to African Business

The first Intra-Africa Trade Fair has opened to much fanfare in Cairo, Egypt, an event that follows the Africa Business Forum held in Sharm El Sheikh in Cairo earlier in the week. Spearheading the Fair is Afreximbank, described as a multilateral financial institution which finances and promotes intra and extra African trade. President of the African Export-Import Bank Benedict Oramah said in his opening address: "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."
