African Continental Free-Trade Area (AfCFTA) 1 billion people, 1.2 trillion dollar

Since the creation of the Organisation of the African Unity (OAU), now called the African Union, the African political leaders are moving irreversibly towards the full economic integration, with the aim of creating an African Continental Free-Trade Area (1 billion people, GDP combined: 1.2 trillion) consisting of fifty-four African Countries.

While this goal is very complex (e.g., the intra-African trade represents only 10% of the total African trade) and will require substantial investments (especially in infrastructure); they are taking decisive steps to achieve it.

Some people are talking about “Africa as an emerging continent.” Although we believe it is premature to consider the African continent as an emerging market (although many African countries are already emerging economies, in fact, South Africa is a BRICS Country), rather we can affirm that Africa is the next “frontier market.”

To achieve this vision of a “United Africa”, four African institutions are playing a fundamental role.

  1. The “African Union” establishes the political vision.
  2. The NEPAD is the executing agency of the African Union
  3. The Economic Commission for Africa (United Nations) is the responsible, among other things, to organise all the information necessary to achieve the African Integration
  4. The African Development Bank is primarily responsible for financing and supporting the development projects in Africa

The African Union has agreed the “Agenda 2063: The future we want for Africa” an essential document to understand the vision of the African leaders.

Knowing these institutions (*), operations, programs and information they provide is vital to understand the profound transformation taking place in Africa.

(*) Regional Economic Communities also play a fundamental role (analysed in another course).
