The Potential of the Clothing & Textile Regional Value Chain under the AfCFTA
This Trade Report analyses one of the value chains identified as a development priority by the AfCFTA: the clothing, textile & leather sector (CT&L) in Africa, from the perspective of the regional and global value chain dimensions. The imperative for value chain development in the context of the AfCFTA is first established, before undertaking an analysis of existing and potential regional value chain development within the specific sector. Finally, a gender analysis using enterprise (microeconomic) data is undertaken, before conclusions and policy recommendations are drawn out in the final section.
