Ms Judi Nwokedi, former Chair of the Indian Ocean Rim Business Forum (IORBF) of South Africa, will represent IORA at a major trade conference being held on 15-17 February by the Global Trade Review (GTR).

Ms Nwokedi will emphasise the trade and investment opportunities in the Indian Ocean region as part of ‘GTR MENA’, GTR’s globally recognised flagship conference on trade and export finance in the MENA region.


‘The trade and growth opportunities in the corridors that connect Africa, the Middle East and Asia are boundless,’ said Ms Nwokedi.  ‘The Indian Ocean is the essential connection and I’m pleased IORA is playing its part in facilitating trade and investment in the region.’


IORA’s participation in the GTR MENA conference is the first step in a new partnership between IORA and GTR that will help profile trade and business opportunities across the Indian Ocean region, endorsed by IORA’s Council of Ministers (COM) in December 2021.
