A Flagship project of the African Union Agenda 2063, the Africa Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) creates a market of 1.3 billion people and a combined GDP of $3.4 trillion. A reported 81% of goods can start being traded under preferential terms while approx. 20% continue to be negotiated with plans to conclude by July 2021.

As African Nations begin to walk the journey towards a zero tariffs zone, what does the road to implementation look like?

Join us for a briefing with the Secretary General of the African Continental Free Trade Area Secretariat, H.E. Wamkele Mene on:

  1. Progress and steps for trading under the AfCFTA;
  2. Priorities & expectations on timelines towards zero tariff trading; and
  3. Policy/regulatory changes preceding successful implementation of the AfCFTA.
