ACfTA

In 2018 Africa Heads of State signed an agreement that brought in the AfricanContinental Free Trade Area ( ACfTA )
 – a game-changer in African regional and international trade.

ACfTA

covers a market of more than 1.2 billion people and a combined GDP of $3trillion, with the potential of augmenting intra-African trade by over 50 %. The saidagreement is projected to add $75 billion in income to the rest of the world.

The ACfTA

 has been geographically the largest free trade area in the world since theestablishment of the World Trade Organization. With its coming into force in 2021, it hasput African economies and all African countries on a better economic footing globally.

The said agreement will enhance competitiveness and stimulate innovation, investment, and economic growth by augmenting efficiency and eradicating trade barriers.

 The removal of tariffs on goods is projected to increase the value of intra- Africa trade by 15-25 %;
projected to be $50 billion and $70 billion in dollar amount.

The ACfTA
 to succeed and deliver on its promises,
 the African continent will need to improve its infrastructure
 and internet connectivity.

 Implementation of ACfTA in 2021

The world in which the ACfTA came into force was a markedly different one from whichit was conceived.

The economic destruction caused by COVID 19 manifestedunprecedented health and financial crisis, which has reversed developments and slowedthe region's growth prospects.

For years to come, Africa will derive more significant benefits from diversification of trade and indeed moving up the value of the chain instead of free trade as the bulk of African exports are agriculture, raw materials, and mineral products.

Africa's challenges are underdeveloped infrastructure, lack of electricity, labor force, and sparse agro-processing capacity.

There is a need for Africa to diversify its products and have a functional infrastructure network that will also include food, transportation, and power.

The success or otherwise of ACfTA will be contingent on a rapid recovery post-COVID -19 global pandemic.

Key Objectives of this ACfTA event
 

●Highlight challenges Africa faces with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic on Trade and ACfTA.

●Articulate possible solutions to unreliable infrastructures
 and their impact on E-commerce

● Reflect on how to ensure that the effect of COVID-19
 on SMEs is not permanent.

●Make connections among various development frameworks, including Africa Agenda2063, and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development ( in particular Goals 8, 9, 11, 12,and 17 )

 

Questions addressed at ACfTA Conference

●How can Africa develop and implement more commercial activities within the region,with a more flexible trading arrangement suitable for the unique circumstances of countries in Africa?

●How can we raise Africa's voice and negotiating power
 in world trade engagements?

●What international support does Africa need in capacity,
 knowledge, access to the latest science and technology, and financing instruments to develop infrastructures?

●How can Africa counterbalance the rising trade costs, improve the capacity of African Countries to better benefit from the reorganization of GVCs, and strengthen RVCs

– thus mitigating the economic and social impact of the crisis through new business opportunities, counterbalancing the deflating pressures on production and salaries?

●How can we ensure that the continent's ambitious food security policy has a substantial impact on intra- African Trade in agriculture, food, petroleum, and chemicals sectors and that lack of implementation of which the disruption of supply chains could affect
African food security and sovereignty?

 Expected Outcomes

It is expected that the side event would :

●Raise awareness, augment commitment, and deepen dialogue among the Member States, including representatives of Africa as well as key stakeholders, on Trade and e-commerce in the COVID-19 recovery and rehabilitation plans; and

● Synthesize views expressed by participants and present the key messages as possible policy recommendations for
 Trade, E-Commerce, Fintech, Bitcoin, and Global Health.

●A virtual "Africa and Asia "Concert after the program.

 Participants

●Representatives of the UN Member States ;

●Representatives of relevant UN entities and
other international organizations ;

●Representatives of African regional and sub-regional organizations.

●Representatives of significant development partners ;

●Representatives of major Civil Society Organizations (CSOs),
 the private sector, Academia, Media and interfaith communities.
