广东省贸促会（广东国际商会）作为全省最大的国际贸易与投资促进机构,目前已与149个境外对口机构、商协会签订了合作协议，并推动建立了17个境外广东商会和16个中外双边企业家理事会合作机制；根据省委、省政府部署在23个国家或地区设立了广东省驻境外经贸代表处。近年来，我会响应国家“一带一路”建设号召，发挥自身独特优势，实施“走出去”战略，开展企业“走进非洲”活动，为我省企业开拓非洲市场搭建平台，有力地推动了我省与非洲国家的经贸合作和民间交流。为抓住机遇，推进国际产能和装备制造合作，积极引导和支持企业到非洲进行投资贸易，我们发起成立广东国际商会非洲投资贸易联盟（Africa Investment and Trade Alliance，缩写： AITA）(以下简称联盟）。
An Introduction to Africa Investment and Trade Alliance (AITA)
CCPIT Guangdong Committee, or Guangdong Chamber of International Commerce(GCOIC), as the largest institution for the promotion of international trade and investment, has so far signed cooperation agreements with 149 overseas counterpart institutions and commercial associations, and shared an effort on establishing 17 Overseas Guangdong Chambers of Commerce and 16 Cooperation Mechanisms of Sino-foreign Bilateral Entrepreneur Council. According to the deployment plan of the Party Committee of Guangdong Province and the Government of Guangdong Province, GCOIC has established Guangdong Overseas Economic and Trade Representative Offices in 23 countries and regions. In recent years, in response to the “the Belt and Road” Initiative issued by the state, GCOIC exploits its unique advantages to implement “Go Global” strategy and promote “Into Africa” activity among enterprises, which has built a platform for Guangdong enterprises to explore African market, and greatly advanced the trade and economic cooperation and non-government exchanges between Guangdong Province and Africa. GCOIC took the initiative in establishing Africa Investment and Trade Alliance (AITA) in order to seize the opportunity of promoting the cooperation on international productivity and equipment manufacturing, and play an active part in guiding and supporting enterprises to invest and trade in Africa.
The aim of AITA is to organize Guangdong enterprises to look for commercial opportunities in Africa and develop as a group. Members of AITA are mainly engaged in the investment and trade in Africa and the exploration of African market. AITA takes an active part in seeking cooperation and communication with commercial associations from various countries and regions in Africa, establishing good relationship with government institutions, finance and insurance institutions and non-government organizations, providing informational, consultative, legal and other supports to member enterprises, and integrating the productivity of member enterprises and countries and regions of Africa. Besides, in order to expand the influence and competitive strength of Guangdong enterprises in Africa, AITA collects resources and realizes complementary advantages for enterprises that have invested in Africa and enterprises that have an interest in investing in Africa. Moreover, AITA provides members with opportunities to communicate and learn, research projects and release information through investigations, exhibitions, forums, business integration conferences and other forms of activities, to promote the establishment of Guangdong Overseas Economic and Trade Representative Offices and Overseas Guangdong Chambers of Commerce, as well as the construction of “Guangdong Industrial Park” .
We treasure and appreciate all our friends who share the work for AITA. AITA will provide better services to members with all effort and make progress together with members. We will continue to improve ourselves to do better.
