Anticipating the effect of AfCFTA on South African Industrialists

Anticipating the effect of AfCFTA on South African Industrialists

25 February 2021 | 12h30 - 14h00

The 33rd Assembly of the African Union which took place from 9-10 February 2020 officially launched the operational phase of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA). The main aim of the AfCFTA is to create a single continental market for goods and services, with free movement of business, persons, and investments. The Agreement envisages that 90% of products would be traded duty-free within ten years. As of 5 February 2021, 36 AU member states have ratified the Agreement. 

As the Agreement shifts into its operational phase, it is important for South African industrialists to consider what potential opportunities this Agreement provides to their respective value chains in the next 2-3 years. 

TWIMS is hosting a virtual panel discussion for manufacturers to understand how the AfCFTA is likely to evolve over the next few years and anticipate the impact on South African industrialists. This webinar will be hosted by Mbongeni Ndlovu, TWIMS African Industrialisation Research Head, and Glen Robbins, TWIMS Head of Research.

This online-only webinar is FREE and will be open to our entire community on a first come first serve basis. We encourage you to register now to avoid missing out! Find out more here
