The CFTA provides the African continent with an opportunity to increase trade flows among its member states, create decent jobs and lift its people out of poverty. The private sector is at the very heart of that effort. we must also ensure that women and youth are better placed to participate and gainfully benefit from the CFTA. Women must be provided better protection along the trade transport corridors. The African Trade Policy Centre (ATPC) in partnership with the Pan African Chamber of Commerce organized the 2017 African prosperity conference under the theme: The Continental Free Trade Area (CFTA)- Exploring Possibilities for Business Engagement across Africa in Accra, Ghana. The main purpose of the meeting was to facilitate private sector input to the CFTA negotiating process which is currently in progress.
