The event will cover all aspects of trade in the region and aims at attracting businessmen and women operating in East Africa and those planning on gaining access. It will explore opportunities and challenges of doing business and investing in East Africa as a region and provide a networking platform for potential investors to meet with the key players in the region with a total estimated population of over 100 Million people.
