Events / 02-06-21 / Share Link

The potential benefits associated with the establishment of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) are well trodden, as is the recognition that the removal of non-tariff barriers will be crucial to the agreement’s success.

This session from GTR East Africa 2021 Virtual sees Carl Chirwa (Head of International Banking, Bank One), Prince Kofi Wadie (Structured Trade Head, East Africa, Citi Kenya), Dev Anand Haman (Assistant Secretary General, Admin & Finance, Comesa), and Manaseh Oiro (Trade & Policy Manager, Kenya Association of Manufacturers (KAM)) assess the opportunities and risks associated with free trade from an East African perspective.

This debate pinpoints the key regulatory developments required to enable the growth of formal trade, improve the availability of trade financing for regional banks and corporates, and considers the potential for the AfCFTA to boost value and industry across the region.
