The IATF initiative supports the implementation of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA). It is organised by Afreximbank in collaboration with the African Union and the AfCFTA Secretariat , marking an important step to sustainably addressing the gap in trade and market information for the successful realisation of the AfCFTA objectives. The Government of the Republic of Côte d’Ivoire will be hosting the 3rd edition of the IATF (IATF2023) in Abidjan from 21 – 27 November 2023, under the theme: Connecting African Markets.

A strong focus will be placed on recognising growth opportunities for Intra-African, cross-border trade and investments. IATF2023 will provide a unique and valuable platform for businesses to access an integrated African market of over 1.3 billion people with a GDP of over US$3.5 trillion created under the African Continental Free Trade Area.

The inaugural edition of IATF, which took place in 2021, attracted over 32,541 visitors and buyers and over 1,501 exhibitors from 69 countries resulting in over $42.1 billion worth of trade and investment deals that were signed at the event. The 3rd edition of IATF is expected to be even bigger and aims to attract over 35,000 visitors, more than 180 hosted buyers from 75 countries and over 1,600 exhibitors. IATF2023 is expected to generate up to US$43 billion in trade and investment deals.
