Background to the Trade Mission:

Ignite Trade Africa collaborated with the Organization of Women in International Trade (OWIT) in Nigeria to organize an Inbound Mission from Nigeria to Kenya which took place on 1st to 7th September  2019.

This trade mission was organised with the understanding that to enhance the existing bilateral cooperation and promote trade between the Republic of Kenya and  the Federal Republic of Nigeria, there need to be initiatives undertaken by stakeholders in both countries to improve trade & investment.  At Ignite Trade Africa, we believe that there is a need for an objective and development –  oriented approach to specifically drive trade amongst the MSME segment.

In the lead up to the International Youth Day on 12th August 2018, Ignite Trade Africa,  organized a forum dubbed  “Youth Engagement For SDGs” that was held at the United States International University(USIU)- Africa, Nairobi on 10th August 2018. This initiative was designed to mobilize and activate the power of young people to drive the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in Africa. The theme of this forum was “Creating Safe Spaces for Engagement of Youth Enterprises for the Implementation of SDGs”. Our chief guest being Dr. Manu Chandaria.
