The fourth East African Trade Fair kicks off mid next month at the Saba Saba grounds in Mwanza City, organisers said on Tuesday.

Over 350 exhibitors from Kenya, Uganda, Burundi, Rwanda and host, Tanzania were expected to take part in the show slated for August 14 - 23.

The Regional chairman of the Tanzania Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture (TCCIA), Mr Joseph Kahungwa, said they expected both private and public exhibitors.

The show's major objective was to position Mwanza, Tanzania's second largest city, as the strategic investment hub in the Great Lakes region, said Mr Kahungwa.

They also hoped to complement the ongoing efforts for the integration of the East African Community (EAC) member states.
