The objectives of this event are to provide key messages and recommendations resulting from the African regional integration research and engage member states in considering how best to approach the AfCFTA phase II negotiations. Three policy options are identified for e-commerce in the AfCFTA: An African digital economy strategy covering the governance of cross-border e-commerce and related issues; E-commerce perspectives to be integrated into existing AU instruments; An e-commerce protocol as an instrument within the AfCFTA. Regardless of the approach the AfCFTA takes, African countries can support e-commerce development by seeking technical assistance and investing in digital policy capacities, readiness evaluations and research agendas for academics and researchers.
