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.

Join us June 22, 2021, 8-9a.m. EAT for a stakeholder discussion on the the role of logistics and supply chain in the implementation and success of the AfCFTA. The discussion will cover:

  • Logistical readiness to facilitate trade under AfCFTA across the continent, with a comparative analysis of various African Markets' readiness.
  • Challenges and proposed solutions for the logistics sector in AfCFTA implementation.
  • Digital innovation in logistics and its role in catalyzing trade under the AfCFTA.
  • Logistics as an enabler of the FMCG and E-commerce industries under the AfCFTA, and the rise of e-logistics to solve challenges facing the industry.
  • A breakdown of the benefits of AfCFTA to the logistics sector.
  • The roles of various stakeholders including the private sector in catalyzing as well as required policy and regulatory changes.
