The trade, investment and finance landscape of African agriculture is changing fast. To be at the forefront, we invite you to attend the 2nd Afriexporter International Expoon 24-25 October 2019 at the Africa’s iconic Hotel known as prestigious Lagos Oriental Hotel, Nigeria, West Africa.
The theme is “REGIONAL CROSS BORDER TRADE: GATEWAY TO INTERNATIONAL EXPORTS”
The #afriexpo brings together over 500 key stakeholders, industry leaders and experts – from governments, banks, financiers, investors, exporters, traders, consultants, clearing and forwarding agents, importers, project developers, commercial farmers and the agro-processing industry – to discuss opportunities and trends that will likely influence not only the regional trade and agribusiness economics over the next decade in West Africa but also the international partnership opportunities.
