Virtual Event
This online event focusing on eTradeHubs will provide details on the Women Traders in AfCFTA partnership between ICC, UPS, tralac and West Blue Consulting and is part of a series of events being held throughout 2021.

This webinar is set to launch the eTradeHubs, a brand-new online portal for a one-stop entry point to trade tools and information with a special focus on Africa Continental Free Trade Agreement (AfCFTA) countries.

Join our line-up of expert speakers from ICC, UPS, tralac, West Blue Consulting and Global Trade Solution as they partner up to maximise the impact of women-led SMEs and provide support on business-scaling, import and export activities, inter-regional trade and digitisation tips for better trade facilitation in Africa.

Get answers to questions such as:
  • How to reduce the time and cost of doing business?
  • Where to find the necessary documentation needed by the trade community?
  • Where to get information on the duties applicable in the markets I want to export to?
  • How to classify goods for customs?
  • How to increase the participation of African businesses in the AfCFTA?
