It is my great honour and privilege to welcome you most warmly to TEXA 2018! Project Prime International (PPI) is pleased to host this event, which is designed to showcase and promote Africa’s Small Medium Enterprises (SMEs) seeking market penetration into the United States of America and other African Countries. Forums such as this enable us to consolidate efforts to contribute to the growth and development of Africa’s economy by increasing trade relations among African countries and the USA. We are proud of who we are as Africans, where we are and more importantly, where we are headed. In April 2015, the IMF’s Regional Economic Outlook for Sub-Saharan Africa predicted that over the next 20 years, sub-Saharan Africa will become the main source of new entrants in to the global labour force. Botswana and South Africa are the two biggest exporting countries in Africa but TEXA aims to encourage more countries to hop on the bus and reduce heavy reliance on importation. We are excited about the opportunities inherent as participating SMEs with export oriented products and services will find this expo rewarding. We are our greatest asset and together we can make a difference. Let us stay focused and positive as we shape and reshape the future of AFRICA.
Welcome to TEXA!
