The African Continental Free Trade Area, covering 54 countries, has the potential to become the world’s largest free trade zone. Launched in 2018, this highly promising initiative aims to connect 1.4 billion Africans across the continent, with an aggregated GDP of 3.5 trillion dollars. Such a transformative deal can contribute deliver inclusive, resilient, and sustainable growth, provided that the challenges are addressed.

This current theme is the focal point that Casablanca Finance City has chosen to highlight in its new Africa Insights report, which will be presented and discussed during the CFC Insights conference scheduled for February 21, 2024.

Africa Insights reports are thematic sectoral reports developed with expert member companies in their fields or reputable research firms. The publication of these reports provides CFC community members with key information to operate in Africa under optimal conditions and facilitates their understanding of the specificities of African countries.
