New Pan-African Advisory Committee on Digital Trade

Afreximbank, the African Union Commission (AUC), and African Continental Free Trade Area Secretariat (AfCFTA), have established a digital policy working group to serve as a high-level platform and point of contact for public-private sector engagement on African Digital policy issues in the context of the rapidly evolving digital economy of Africa. The working group was launched during a workshop held on 6 and 7 April 2022 in Cairo, Egypt.

The working group comprises digital “scale-ups”; mature digital ventures in Africa with clear trade-enabling products and services, operations, and business models that transcend a single domestic market and provide services across the continent – working alongside representatives of the AfCFTA and AU member states. The working group will provide the AU Member States and AfCFTA State Parties with a direct line of sight to the African digital economy and the opportunities that exist within it, as well as insight into the challenges facing the companies operating in the market.

EFA was invited to the Afreximbank’s annual conference in June, but sadly budgetary restraints prevent us from attending.
