Africa Open for Business




Thursday, 29 September 2022,

 3:00pm New York Time,

Conference Room 3, United Nations Headquarters in New York


Africa is a continent of hope and promise, blessed with an abundance of human and natural resources and possessing myriad unique cultures, customs and traditions.

Africa, as a crucible for innovation and growth in business, trade and development, has the potential to be at the forefront of a paradigm shift – business models that provide a solid return on investments, sustainably, while safeguarding our planet and people, upholding human dignity, and respecting the rule of law.

In 2019, the African Continental Free Trade Agreement, establishing the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA), entered into force. AfCFTA is playing an important role in transforming how Africa does business, internally and internationally, and builds confidence amongst foreign investors and trading partners.

However, regardless of the opportunities, wealth, and other economic and other benefits that AfCFTA will bring, AfCFTA will be a moral failure if these benefits are not shared equitably with women and girls.

 Women, who constitute a major part of the informal economy, are burdened by systematic and patriarchal norms, including the inability to own or inherit land, or to access financial and other resources.

Women and girls continue to face physical and other threats to their health, safety, and mental and bodily wellbeing and autonomy. These have all severely impaired their ability to achieve economic independence and empowerment.

Therefore, as intercontinental and intracontinental commerce develops through AfCFTA, it is imperative to ensure that women are not left behind. Women must have real representation and voice in its implementation, and must not be unfairly burdened in reaping its benefits.

Next year will mark the
75th anniversary of the Universal Declaration on Human

which promises that

“All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights,”

As the implementation of AfCFTA unfolds, we must seize this opportunity to ensure that the dignity, freedom and equality promised to women and girls are not just their stated rights,
but rather their actual realities.

If properly implemented, AfCFTA has the potential to be a vector for achieving a better, more equitable world, for all
