Author(s): tralac

This booklet provides a handy guide on the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) – the architecture of the Agreement Establishing the AfCFTA, what the Agreement covers, institutional arrangements, and how it fits within Africa’s broader development agenda. The booklet also offers an overview of intra-African trade in goods (agricultural trade, non-agricultural trade, trade in commodities) and trade in services, as well as intra-African tariffs and trade facilitation performance.

Further information on the AfCFTA negotiations, as well as the legal texts of the AfCFTA Agreement and ratification status of the legal instruments, is available on tralac’s AfCFTA resources page.
