Get inspired in
innovative Kigali

Kigali is a dynamic, creative and progressive city, known for its creative startups and tech hubs and supported by an encouraging investment climate. We are uppermost delighted that the second IATF will take place in Kigali.

IATF is proudly supported by the following partners

Today, intra-African trade is only 16% of total African trade

One reason is lack of access to trade and market information. To address this challenge, Afreximbank decided to, among other initiatives, convene the IATF every two years to provide trade and market information and to connect buyers and sellers from across the continent.
