dc.description.abstractThe African continental free trade area presents an opportunity to leverage trade for structural transformation, economic growth and job creation in Africa. This is because intra-African trade, which the African continental free trade area will promote, has a strong impact on development. Industrial, value-added and processed agricultural products comprise a far larger share of intra-African trade than the share they comprise of Africa’s exports to other regions of the world, around 75 per cent of which are extractives like petroleum oils and minerals. The production of items that are traded among African countries is more labour intensive, thereby helping to generate jobs for Africa’s growing population of young people and helping countries to be less impacted by fluctuations in global commodity prices, enabling them to better fuel sustainable economic growth. The present issues paper is divided into two parts: the first details the economic and development arguments for the African continental free trade area and for the prompt ratification of the related legal instruments. The second focuses on the African continental free trade area as a pathway to fiscal sustainability and the supporting measures that can be used to enhance the fiscal space of and realize fiscal independence in African countries.en
