TALIF (Textile, Apparel & Leather Investment Forum) is a prestigious Pan-African annual Conference organized by ACHIEVAZ Ltd, designed to serve as a beacon of Pan-African unity and economic empowerment. This forum stands as Africa’s premier sector-specific investment symposium, transcending borders to forge impactful connections within the vibrant realms of the Textile, Apparel & Leather industry.

Endorsed by the Rwanda Ministry of Trade and Industry (MINICOM) in 2019, TALIF has flourished into a beacon of opportunity, celebrating the spirit of collaboration and innovation across the continent. With two successful editions already under its belt, TALIF exemplifies a commitment to fostering sustainable partnerships and fostering growth in alignment with the transformative principles of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA).

TALIF isn’t just an event; it’s a catalyst for change, a nexus where visionaries, entrepreneurs, and industry leaders converge to chart the course for a prosperous future. By harnessing the potential of AfCFTA, TALIF serves as a dynamic platform where ideas are exchanged, investments are catalysed, and the fabric of the African industry is woven with threads of progress and prosperity.
