International Trade Event: Regional Integration from a Regulatory and Private Sector Perspective: The Implications of Trade in Africa

We are pleased to invite you to our International Trade Law event, in commemoration of the African Integration Day. The event, themed ‘Regional Integration from a Regulatory and Private Sector Perspective: The Implications of Trade in Africa’, will bring together a diverse group of panellists and attendees that encounter integration and trade issues across a variety of business sectors and interact on these issues from policy perspectives. The African Integration Day was established in 2019 by the African Union Heads of State and Government to celebrate the major achievements attained in the regional and continental integration process; and to deliberate on critical lessons learned, with a view to addressing challenges faced. The annual celebration is based on Africa’s Integration Agenda which has the overarching objective of establishing the African Economic Community at the continental level. Operationalisation of trading under the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) brings the Continent one step closer to this goal.
