Africa Alliance- Regionalization and Nearshoring of Trade in Africa

The EU Tech Chamber (EUTECH) Africa Alliance webinar on “Regionalization and Nearshoring of Trade in Africa” started off with a short overview of the organisation and a formal introduction of the panellists by our moderator, Ms. Silvia Raing’o, coordinator of the Africa Alliance.

The panellists for today’s webinar were:

Mr. WAIHIGA K. MUTURI (MPRSK, CPM, RTN.) 🇰🇪 (, Africa-HUB Programs Advisor
Ms. Uju Uzo-Ojinnaka, CEO at Traders of Africa (TOFA), Alibaba and UN Fellow
Ms. Verena Zimmer, Project Assistant at CCI Network Office Africa|German Chamber of Commerce and Industry

The webinar explored the untapped potential of trade in Africa and the nearshoring strategies that would further increase trading activities in Africa. Further, it shed light on Africa’s booming trade landscape and the opportunity it offers to potential and existing investors.

The webinar was successful in uncovering how trade agreements, for example, the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) Agreement are reshaping the continent’s landscape. The speakers emphasized on how businesses are optimizing their supply chains by moving closer to the African market and also delved into ideas that would increase regionalization and nearshoring activities in Africa.

We want to thank our respectable speakers for their informed insights on this topic. Moreover, special thanks to Ms. Silvia Wanjiru Raing’o for moderating the webinar and distributing Tree-Certificates to the panelists.
Above all, sincere thanks to all our attendees – your comments, compliments, and questions. Stay tuned for our next Africa Alliance webinar!
