The 7th edition of the “Financing Investment and Trade in Africa” (FITA 2024) international conference will be held on June 11 and 12 in Tunis, under the slogan “Strengthening local transformation and technology transfer for sustainable and inclusive growth in Africa”, at the initiative of the Tunisia-Africa Business Council (TABC).

Some 1,000 participants from 65 African and European countries are expected to attend this economic event, represented by high-level delegations from leading companies, banks and continental and regional financial institutions.

TABC President Anis Jaziri emphasized that this major economic event aims to establish an exchange of views and experiences across the African continent, with a view to further strengthening relations between African countries and establishing solid partnerships.

According to him, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and Poland are the guests of honor at the “FITA 2024” conference, through the presence of large delegations and the expected participation of Poland’s Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs and another DRC government official.

Other African countries taking part in “FITA 2024” for the first time include Uganda, Namibia, Nigeria and South Africa, as well as South Korea to promote triangular cooperation with Africa, in addition to the presence of large delegations of senior officials and businessmen.

According to the same source, the 7th edition of the FITA conference will also see the participation of six heads of agencies for the promotion of foreign investment in Africa, in order to develop bilateral relations and investments, as well as trade.

This economic event will also see the participation of numerous international and continental financial institutions, namely the World Bank, the International Finance Corporation, the African Development Bank (AfDB) and Afreximbank (African Export-Import Bank), especially as these institutions are in a position to provide the funds needed to promote investment in the continent and the development of industry in Africa.

One of the aims of “FITA 2024” is to highlight Tunisia’s experience in the industrial field since the 1970s, particularly in terms of industrial restructuring and its success in exporting to the European Union.

The event program includes dialogue sessions and workshops led by a group of specialists and managers from a number of African companies and businesses.
