Africa Trade Exchange (ATEX) is a B2B and B2G platform to enable procurement in bulk of basic commodities to ensure countries’ access to scarce supplies in a transparent manner. The goal of ATEX is to help small, medium, and large African businesses tap into new markets in Africa and thereby facilitate optimization of their supply-chains for accelerated economic growth.
ATEX is a digital trade platform connected within the digital ecosystem, supporting the implementation of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) agreement. ATEX will help realize the development potential of e-commerce and digitalisation, particularly by facilitating access for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) into new markets. This will enhance intra-African trade and the African trade position in the global market, thus assisting African businesses optimizing their supply chains and their continued growth. ATEX is connected within the wider digital ecosystem supporting the implementation of the AfCFTA.
