AfCFTA 2021 - African Continental Free Trade Area

7 Feb 2021 15:15 | Anonymous


With the start of the new year, came the launch of the African Continental Free Trade Area, AfCFTA, presenting enormous business opportunities for the Pan-African Private Sector, SMEs, Women and Youths.

54 out of the 55 African Union Member States have signed and 31 of those States have ratified the agreement thus far.

Dr. Amany Asfour, Interim Chair Person of the African Business Council stated, “The AfCFTA gives us an opportunity to drive our agenda.  For many years, the African business community has been individualistic in driving the continent’s agenda.  It is an opportunity for us as the African Business Council to come together and support the implementation of the AfCFTA.  We are a united voice, and we can do this together”.

More information on the AfCFTA can be read here.
