The theme of this year’s event is “Buy East African to Build East Africa for Resilience and Sustainable Development, is expected to attract more than 1,500 MSME's from all the seven (7) EAC Partner States.

The 1st EAC MSMEs Trade Fair was held in Arusha, Tanzania in November 1999 during the historic event of signing of the Treaty for the Establishment of the EAC. Subsequent to the success of the Arusha exhibition,  the then  EAC Heads of State directed that the Exhibition be held annually on rotational basis among the Partner States so as to enhance and revamp the socio-economic integration of the people of East Africa.

The objective of the trade fair is to facilitate  economic integration by enabling the realization of the community’s commerce and trade development goals.
