Africa Trade Forum 2011

November 22-24, 2011
Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

Theme : Accelerating Intra-African Trade and Enhancing Africa’s Participation in Global Trade

The Africa Trade Forum (ATF) is the flagship programme of the Africa Trade Policy Centre (ATPC), which is an initiative of the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa with principal funding support from the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA).

The primary goal of the ATF is to enhance advocacy for trade in Africa and to put trade at the centre of the development agenda.

The strategic objective of the inaugural Africa Trade Forum, ATF 2011 is to promote multi-stakeholder policy dialogue on trade issues in Africa, by mobilising all the different trade constituencies across Africa and the world in general, to debate and exchange views on all the key issues relating to intra-African trade, and Africa’s trade with the rest of the world.

It is envisaged that in subsequent years, the ATF will focus on specific issues which would already have been introduced in the inaugural Forum.

The various stakeholders include policy makers and high level government officials, private sector operators (large corporate, small and medium scale entrepreneurs), civil society, parliamentarians, academia and researchers, Regional Economic Communities (RECs), corridor management institutions, export promotion agencies, development partners, gender advocates and the media.
