The Addis Ababa Chamber of Commerce and Sectoral Associations (Addis Chamber) announced the vital role of the Addis-Chamber International Trade Fair (ACITF) in revitalizing Ethiopia's economy through trade sector modernization. Kicking off its 26th edition on February 22, 2024, the fair which is being held at the Addis Ababa Exhibition Center is showcasing local and international products to eager consumers.
