It is a five-day Market Entry Expedition organized by the Ghana National AfCFTA Coordination Office, in collaboration with other AfCFTA implementing institutions, with the support of the World Bank's Ghana Economic Transformation Project and GIZ Trade Hub; aimed at introducing Ghanaian businesses into the Tanzanian market under the AfCFTA Agreement.

The event is scheduled for January 24th - 28th, 2024, at the Mlimani City Conference Center in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. 

Ghanaian businesses can participate by registering online on the Ghana expo website or contacting the National AfCFTA Coordination Office.

Sectors include (but are not limited to) cosmetics, cocoa, textiles, agro-processing, alcoholic beverages, ceramics, aluminum products, leather, crafts, electrical, building and real estate, financial services, and ICT.

Yes, approximately twenty-five Tanzanian businesses will be invited to exhibit their goods alongside Ghanaian counterparts. Many more Tanzanian businesses will also be present to take part in Business-to-Business engagements.

The focus is on Ghanaian and Tanzanian businesses, but participation from other African countries is welcome, subject to booth space availability.

Tanzanian businesses can express their interest in B2B sessions by reaching out to the NCO directly, or through the NCO's partners in Tanzania such as the Tanzania Trade Development Authority, Tanzania Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture, Tanzania Women Chamber of Commerce, Tanzania Private Sector Foundation and the Confederation of Tanzanian Industries.
