The African Electronic Trade Group, a multi-stakeholder group which works to implement e-empowerments with a view to developing electronic trade in Africa, is negotiating with the Ethiopian Government to open its East Africa Headquarters in Addis Ababa.
The Group was established 14 years ago aiming to position Africa as a meaningful shareholder of the fast-growing digital economy. In this regard, it has implemented a continental electronic trading system called “Sokokuu-Africa” which promotes products made in Africa.
Its regional headquarters is in Kigali, Rwanda. Former Prime Minister of Ethiopia, Hailemariam Dessalegn, was appointed as the Group’s Chair in January last year.
