The CFTA: Toward 21st Century Trade Governance for Africa

Session objectives 

The Continental Free Trade Area (CFTA) is Africa’s opportunity to shape a 21st century trade and integration agenda. This will require inspiring leadership and innovative approaches to negotiations and content. This session will appraise the decisions of the AU Summit (June 2015) and the implications of the negotiating principles. New approaches to negotiations in areas such as trade in services and trade governance will be proposed.
