AfCFTA: the age of infrastructure?
The implementation of the AfCFTA should have a significant effect on intra-African trade which is estimated to increase by 52,3% in 2022, compared with trade levels in 2010. But infrastructure deficit could threaten this path. Africa’s current pipeline of infrastructure projects is estimated to be worth $2.5 trillion. Yet only 10% of them are likely to reach financial close because of low technical capabilities and unequal allocation of resources throughout the funding project cycle.
As the newly implemented free-trade agreement offers a strategic momentum, can a more efficient infrastructure funding project cycle emerge from it?
