Great Trade Expectations – will AfCFTA deliver?
By creating a mutually beneficial trade agreement among the member states, the AfCFTA pact is expected to promote industrialisation, create jobs, empower women (by improving their access to trade opportunities) and improve the competitiveness of African industries on the global stage. Can we expect AfCFTA to significantly increase intra-regional trade? What are the results we’re seeing so far?
Professor Tsitsi Mutambara of Rhodes University presents her study examining the regional intensity of trade in Africa from 2001-2018 and the implications for intra-Africa trade in the African Continental Free Area (AfCFTA). The results are considered as an ex post indication of trade integration and intra-Africa trade, with the AfCFTA in place.
