When the African Heads of State and Government met at the extraordinary African Union (AU) summit in March 2018 at Kigali, Rwanda, the primary focus for signing and adoption of the Agreement establishing the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) was to create an economic vehicle for enhanced welfare and prosperity for African citizens.



The establishment of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) in 2018 marked a significant step forward in the economic integration efforts for Africa. The prospects of the AfCFTA have received growing interest in international trade policy, particularly, due to the high level of commitment shown by the contracting parties to the AfCFTA Agreement. Long after Africa’s political independence, the time for economic independence is here; all hands should be on deck to make this successful.
