GTR West Africa 2020 event logo

Driving economic growth with trade


GTR West Africa returns to Lagos, Nigeria on February 4-5, 2020, anticipating a record attendance of over 350 trade specialists.

With the impending ratification of the AfCFTA by Nigeria amongst other key African economies, a comprehensive two-day agenda will provide expert perspectives on the potential impact of further regional economic integration across West Africa, and the implications of policy initiatives aimed at stimulating economic diversification, financial stability and export growth.  

As the region increasingly focuses on investment in value add industry to promote diverse self-sustaining economies, the need for policy makers to optimise hard currency liquidity while boosting local production and exports poses a challenging environment to those trading across borders. Market-leading speakers sourced from a range of key economic sectors will reflect on the latest regulatory developments impacting trade, and pinpoint the role of key trade and export financing liquidity sources, players and deal structures in facilitating business growth. Focused discussions will further explore innovative solutions promoting development throughout the trade value chain in areas such as infrastructure development and capex investment, commodities trade, manufacturing, agribusiness and trade digitisation. 

For corporates and trade financiers looking to make their next move, GTR West Africa provides the ideal platform to hear cutting-edge perspectives from a wide range of trade and export finance experts while offering the opportunity to network with the industry’s top players.

    • Be accurate and kept up to date
    • Not be held for any longer than necessary
