Afreximbank co-organises Zanzibar Trade, Investment forum


The African Export-Import Bank (Afreximbank) has announced its support for The Zanzibar Trade and Investment Forum which will take place on 30 November-1 December. The Forum will showcase investment opportunities and projects in Zanzibar, facilitate B2B engagements, as well as encourage joint ventures, partnerships and business deals within the context of the African Continental Free Trade Area.

This conference builds on Zanzibar’s existing mercantile foundations as an African trading hub, and member of key regional blocs including the East African Community (EAC), the Southern African Development Community (SADC), the Africa Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA), and the Small Islands Development Economies (SIDEs).

Whilst covering a wide range of trade and investment opportunities available to and in Zanzibar, the Forum will discuss several topics including: the country’s blue economy potential; opportunities in Zanzibar’s tourism and real estate sector; improving conditions for business growth; enhancing the nation’s food security, agricultural productivity and agribusiness opportunities; as well as a broader strategy to enhance financing for Africa’s economic recovery.

The Conference is expected to attract influential figures from across the private sector, as well as leaders from government and potential investors, exhibitors, and financial institutions from the East African business community and the rest of Africa. So far over 500 delegates have registered for the Forum, at which Dr Hussein Ali Mwinyi, President of Zanzibar and Chairman of the Revolutionary Council, is expected to be in attendance.
