Abuja chamber of commerce holds trade show to deepen economic integration

By Taiye Baiyerohi
Abuja Chamber of Commerce, in conjunction with CMD Tourism and Trade Enterprises and KVS International, have announced plans to hold AfritradeB2B to deepen economic integration and enhance business relationships on the African continent.
Miss Cecile Doumbe, Managing Director, CMD Tourism and Trade Enterprises, disclosed this in a statement on Saturday.
Doumbe said that this was in line with the African Continental Free Trade Area (AFCFTA) framework.
She noted that the trade show would hold from July 13 to 14 at the main hall of Continental Hotel Abuja, with the theme: “Trading Under AFCFTA: A Game Changer.”
” Facilitating AfritradeB2B is in line with developing economic cooperation, trade and investment within Africa.
” AfritradeB2B meeting is more than an event. It is a platform that creates opportunities for participants to develop profitable trade partnerships with stakeholders and actors across critical sectors of the African economy.
” We are establishing a match-making platform, including fine-selected African prospects and Nigerian economic operators harnessed from B2B meetings,” she said.
Doumbe noted that AfritradeB2B
would be one of the most impactful business-to-business fair to be held in Africa in the year.
She said the strategy of delivering the event was based on identified specific-sector needs of African trade concerns and match-making them with developing opportunities across different African countries within the framework of AFCFTA.
” AfritradeB2B is a significant trade and investment event for business networking and partnerships in Africa.
” We  intend to generate more than 900 matched profiles from more than 200 Nigerian selected companies, and more than 100 targeted African businesses around the continent.
” The AfriTradeB2B conference in Abuja will provide side range of diverse trade solutions, including transfer of technology, business joint ventures, investment assets, distribution channels, trade partnerships, licence agreement and sales agreement,” she said.
So far, AfriTradeB2B has been roundly endorsed by different business and trade agencies of the Federal Government such as the Federal Ministry of Industry, Trade and Investment; Nigerian Export Promotion Company (NEPC); Abuja Enterprise Agency (AEA) and the Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON).
Also it has been endorsed by the National Food and Drug Administration Agency (NAFDAC); the National Institute for Hospitality and Tourism (NIHOTOUR) and the National Association of Chambers of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture (NACCIMA)
