Africa Automotive Show at IATF 2023 a boost to regional integration as countries prepare to trade under AfCFTA

Africa Automotive Show at IATF 2023 a boost to regional integration as countries prepare to trade under AfCFTA

The Africa Automotive Show will take place in Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire as part of the 3rd Intra African Trade Fair (IATF2023) from November 21-27, 2023, the organisers have announced.

As the vision for automotive industrialisation and growth of Africa materialises, the Africa Automotive Show is the ideal platform for all role-players in the automotive value chain to connect from across the continent and globally.

“The aim is for the Africa Automotive Show to be the single most important trade and business development gathering for all automotive role-players, from raw material suppliers, vehicle and component manufacturers, dealers, importers, aftermarket parts manufacturers and suppliers as well as those from the financial and allied industries – from all parts of the continent,’’ says Africa Automotive Show Director Andrew Binning. 

Binning said the Africa Automotive Show – hosted by the African Association of Automotive Manufacturers (AAAM) – is a key activity of the cross-sectoral IATF2023 and would include a dedicated automotive exhibition, a high-level conference and match-making meetings.

“As the event is focussed on trade and partnerships promoting the development of regional automotive value-chains, participants representing all aspects of the automotive value-chain will be attending the week-long event in Cote d’Ivoire next year. ” Binning said.

IATF2023, hosted by the African Export-Import Bank (Afreximbank), in collaboration with the African Union and AfCFTA is anticipated to draw 35 000 visitors from 75 countries and 1600 exhibitors to conclude around $43bn in trade and investment deals.

The African Automotive Show as part of IATF2023 will provide “a unique and valuable platform for businesses to access an integrated African market of over 1.3 billion people with a GDP of over US$3.5 trillion created under the African Continental Free Trade Area,” Binning said.

Dave Coffey the CEO of AAAM said “Cote d’Ivoire and the West African region provides an excellent and relevant location for this edition of “Africa’s premier automotive show.”

“We believe the Africa Automotive Show is well timed as the automotive industry is gaining traction in Africa where we will see trading of vehicles between assembly hubs across the continent supported by the development of regional value chains. Cote d’Ivoire are currently developing their competitive automotive value proposition  that will have profound economic benefits for the country and region in the medium and long term. In collaboration with Ghana and other countries in West Africa that develop their sustainable automotive niche, this will drive scale and real industrialisation”, concluded Coffey.

Exhibition bookings and sponsorship opportunities are available.

Exporters Eastern Cape Wins Trade Promotion Service Provider Award

GQEBERHA – The Exporters Eastern Cape is the proud recipient of the Trade Promotion Service Provider Award at the Southern Africa Regional Exporters Awards which was held in Gqberha this week (26 July 2022).

Showcasing the achievements of exporters in Southern Africa, the awards programme aims to recognise companies in the nine participating countries – Angola, Botswana, Eswatini, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Zambia and South Africa.

Exporters Eastern Cape plays a leading role in creating networking opportunities amongst exporters and facilitating conversations regarding issues which affect exporters in the region. Furthermore, the organisation serves as a catalyst to strengthen support to exporters and organises the annual Exporter of the Year Awards in the province which creates a platform for local businesses to showcase their competitive prowess.

Quintin Levey, Exporters Eastern Cape chairman, said the Trade Promotion Service Provider Award accentuates the work which is carried out by the organisation. “We are sincerely appreciative of this recognition and trust that we add value to an industry which is vital for the economic prosperity of the region,” said Levey.

This was the second edition of the awards programme which was launched last year. The event is a collaboration between the Eastern Cape Development Corporation and the government of the United States of America and the USAID Southern Africa Trade and Investment Hub.
