The Virtual Intra-African Trade Fair is an online platform for buyers and sellers to meet, exchange trade and market information and show case their products and capabilities to new markets. The Virtual Trade Fair (VTF) mimics the inaugural Intra-African Trade Fair (IATF) that took place in Cairo, Egypt in December 2018, and it continues beyond where the physical trade fair concludes.
