The conference will last for two nights and three days

The Private Sector is largely expected to drive the AfCFTA. This has been said a multiple times by Heads of States, Appointees and the Continental Community including your good self. GITFIC has for the past half a decade proved its ability to bring together Business Executives, policy makers and subject matter experts from all over Africa and the world to articulate ways of enhancing inter Africa trade, regional integration, trade liberalization, trade policies and practices of the African continent and notably to turn talks into actions.

The unique feature of our annual conference is its ability to galvanize the business community of Africa as a major driving force moving Africa as a bloc in the global trade and working together on its shared future. GITFIC is indigenously Ghanaian.

 

TARGETTED AUDIENCE

The conference will bring together key stakeholders from African countries, regional economic communities, regional central banks, and specialized regional institutions, including representatives of central banks, national telecom authorities, selected participants from the private sector (banks, mobile money service providers, telecom operators, platform operators and micro financial Institutions, Finance, Trade-Finance, Accounting, Directors, Chief Executives et al), Non-Government Organizations (NGOs), as well as bilateral and multilateral organizations representatives.
