Sucex Bright, Afri-Focus Project Director explains that the expo will be the first in a series that intends to reverse the chronic dependence of African countries on the exportation of raw materials outside of the continent and the subsequent importation of processed products from the same raw materials that were exported from the continent. “This expo will highlight critical sectors of economic growth in Africa and what countries in the region have to offer in the Common Market,” Sucex said, “It is important, for the overall success of the African Continental Free Trade Agreement (AfCFTA), that we inform people on the continent and beyond of existing innovations in the continent and showcase made in Africa brands.”
In addition, Kory Africa CEO, Eric Chinje, highlights that bringing together business leaders, key government policymakers, brands, MSMEs, individuals, embassies, manufacturers, research organizations, private and public sectors, and trade organizations in Africa to share their experiences and research results on all aspects of Processing of Raw Materials, discuss recent innovations, trends, and concerns as well as practical challenges encountered, and solutions in the fields of processing raw materials. “This agreement to embark on the project is evidence of our collective commitment and determination to make sure the AfCFTA is not just another grand African Union (AU) project that ultimately decorates government shelves in the region,” said Kory Africa CEO, Eric Chinje. “Working with media across Africa, we will inform and educate citizens everywhere on the promise and challenges of an African Common Market. The Focus Africa exposition is a chance to jumpstart that process.”
