The sixth edition of Source Africa Textile and Apparel Show promoted the African-made products to national and international buyers and manufacturers, encouraging intra-regional trade between African countries. The recently concluded event featured 140 exhibitions by textile, shoe and clothing producers, suppliers and service providers from across Africa.

Source Africa owned by the global exhibition firm Messe Frankfurt brought together industry leaders and decision-makers from across Africa, Europe and the United States, providing opportunities for buyers, manufacturers, suppliers and service providers to network and find new business opportunities.

"I look around through this hall today, and I see what Africa can be, and what private sector development can do for this continent. I hope that you have a great show over the next two days, and I hope that you learn more about the USAID Southern Africa Trade Hub, I hope that you learn more about the African Growth and Opportunity Act, and I hope to see more African and expatriate businesses get together because there is so much potential here in Southern African and throughout the continent," said USAID Southern Africa mission director John Groarke adding that Source Africa offers a model for private sector-led economic development in Africa, where untapped sourcing and export opportunities abound.

The USAID Southern Africa Trade Hub advances enterprise-driven solutions to unlock Africa’s growing markets. Through innovative public-private sector partnerships, the Hub promotes trade and investment to drive international commercial expansion and encourages resilient economic growth, Messe Frankfurt said in a press release.
