African countries can generate $70billion in trade activities – AfCFTA 

The Africa Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) has suggested that African countries have the potential to generate over $70 billion in trade activities. 

This was disclosed by Silver Ojakol, Chief of Staff of the AfCFTA Secretariat, during the 2023 Regional Integration Issues Forum in Accra, Ghana. 

The RIIF is aimed at increasing awareness of AfCFTA’s benefits, especially for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) which helps to enhance SMEs’ capacity for intra-African trade.
