Africa and the Caribbean join forces in what is poised to be an exceptional and historic event to fortify political and economic ties between the two regions.

AfriCaribbean Trade and Investment Forum ACTIF_2022

The AfriCaribbean Trade and Investment Forum 2022 (#ACTIF_2022), slated for Bridgetown, Barbados, from September 1–3, 2022, is designed to build new trade and investment relationships between Africa and the Caribbean. The Pan-African Council is proud to sponsor a platform that will fortify the inextricable link between the two regions; our shared history, identity, and philosophy bind us to a new, positive chapter of bilateral and multilateral cooperation.

Africa’s trade and investment outlook is promising. As the fastest growing continent in the world, the Brookings Institution projects that annual spending by African consumers and businesses will reach US$6.66 trillion by 2030, a 65% increase from 2015 figures. Given the continent’s economic potential, now is the time to increase trade and investment in Africa.

ACTIF 2022 will be held under the theme “One People, One Destiny: Uniting and Reimagining Our Future”. The Forum aims to foster the development of strategic partnerships between the business communities of Africa and the Caribbean, to bolster bilateral cooperation and increase engagement in trade, investment, technology transfer, innovation, tourism, culture, and other sectors.
