Zambia will send representatives to market investments in the country at The Global African Investment Summit (TGAIS), which will be held in Kigali, Rwanda on 5th–6th September 2016.
TGAIS aims to promote trade and investment in Africa’s Tripartite Free Trade Area (TFTA). TFTA, Africa’s largest trading block comprising 26 countries, is a free trade agreement between the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA), Southern African Development Community (SADC) and East African Community (EAC).
TGAIS, in partnership with COMESA and the Government of Rwanda, will attract 900 public and private sector leaders, representing USD200b of funds with an interest in the investment, trade and business opportunities arising in the region.
The summit will focus on the development of trade and investment corridors in TFTA, regional infrastructure projects, and the creation of an environment that enables harmonization through policy and regulation.
TGAIS has also released its confirmed program, according to which Rwanda’s President H.E. Paul Kagame will deliver the summit keynote at the opening of the event.
