International Business Supports the AfCFTA with Robust Initiatives

The International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) has launched an Africa Trade initiative. The Ecommerce Forum Africa (EFA) is involved in this initiative and has been invited to sit on the ICC Africa Committee. The ICC has announced a cooperation with COMESA, the African regional economic community predominately for East Africa, and a second project with Africa investor (Ai). The ICC and Ai are joining forces to launch a digitally empowered eTrade initiative to enable the digitisation of 5 million micro-, small-, and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Africa. Announced at the second Africa investor Global Trade Organization Leaders’ Summit by ICC Secretary General John W.H. Denton and Hubert Danso, Chairman of Africa investor, the campaign will accelerate the digitisation and intra African and global market access for millions of African SMEs, in support of the AfCFTA.
