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.

The trade mission provided a platform for the stakeholders to acknowledge the importance of regional  trade to the economic and social progress in Africa, while also giving them the opportunity to dialogue  and establish a common purpose towards promoting sustainable growth through trade.

The Trade Mission featured Women-Owned Businesses in the following sectors:

  • ICT
  • Textiles & Apparels
  • Real Estate & Construction
  • Hospitality & Tourism
  • Professional Services
  • Manufacturing
  • Agribusiness
