The African Export-Import Bank (Afreximbank) is to hold a business forum in the Tanzanian city of Dar-es-Salam on the 10th of September to raise awareness and increase access to its financing services and products available to the Tanzanian market.
APA reports that the forum, which is being organised in collaboration with the Bank of Tanzania, would also seek to create critical business and trade-related networks to support the development and growth of trade in the country.
Afreximbank added that the forum would feature presentations and case studies focusing on the gamut of trade finance products and specialized offerings it had designed to meet the unique needs of African and Tanzanian business operators and on how they could be accessed.
The forum, which has the theme, “Promoting Economic Development and Diversification through Trade”, would also offer opportunities for one-on-one meetings between participants and Afreximbank officials for discussions on available financing and business opportunities.
According to Afreximbank, the organization of the Forum is part of an awareness creation programme it is undertaking throughout its member countries in an effort to deepen knowledge about the Bank and to further expand its activities.
Prof. Benno Ndulu, Governor of the Bank of Tanzania, is expected to open the forum, which is being organised in follow up to an invitation from the Bank of Tanzania.
The expected forum participants include heads of financial institutions in Tanzania, corporate sector executives, import and export agencies, trade and project finance developers, and representatives of government agencies.
