The AfCFTA signals a major effort towards a more integrated African regional economy as well as the will to better include Africa in the global supply chain. The World Bank estimates that the AfCFTA will boost intracontinental exports by over 81% and exports with non-African countries by 19% by 2035.
Manufacturing exports are anticipated to make the most gains: a 110% increase for intra-African trade and 46% for non-African trade. For this to be realized however, access to and movement of goods across the region and beyond will be critical.
