SystemSpecs,  Africa’s leading FinTech firm, is showcasing its solutions at the first ever Inter-African Trade Fair in Cairo, Egypt at the Al Manara International Conference Centre, from December 11-17, 2018, as John Obaro, the company’s Managing Director will address the global audience on the “Blockchain solutions for Africa” at the seven-day event.

Analysis by the African Export-Import Bank (Afreximbank) shows that one of the main reasons why intra-African trade is low at around 15% compared to Europe (59%), Asia (51%), and North America (37%), is because of lack of access to trade and market information

To address this challenge, Afreximbank has decided to, among other initiatives, convene the Intra-African Trade Fair every two years to provide trade and market information and connect buyers and sellers from across the continent.

The Intra-African Trade Fair is the first of its kind in Africa, and it comprises a 7-day trade show that provides a platform for sharing trade, investment and market information and enabling buyers and sellers, investors and countries to meet, discuss and conclude business deals.
