A subsidiary of Rescue Shipping and Investment Agency Limited, The Ghana International Trade and Finance Conference (GITFIC), has implied that Africa International Trade and Finance Conference will be held in Ethiopia in 2019.
Mr Selasi Koffi Ackom, Chief Executive Officer of GITIC stated at a media briefing in Accra, the Ghana International Trade and Finance Conference (GITFIC) will enhance Intra-Africa Trade, strengthen Regional Integration, and promote Trade Liberalization across the African continent.
The conference, scheduled for April 11 and 12 at the African Union Commission Headquarters in Addis Ababa, would attract business entities, policy makers, executives and experts from the sub-Saharan Africa.
He said that the two-day conference would provide a platform for industry players to present realistic solutions to trade, investment, and funding opportunities and is being put together by the GITFIC in partnership with Addis Ababa Chamber of Commerce with support from the Ethiopian Embassy in Ghana.
He assured that trade policies and practices in general would be reformed to enhance feasible trends in businesses.
He observed, “after new-continental-wide-trade agreement for Africa, the moment for Africa to declare itself in the international business field must be considered as business and political urgency”.
He said Intra-Regional Trade accounted for only 11 % of Africa’s total trade according to a 2015 statistics, while members in the European Union mounted over 70 % around 2015.
