The Agreement establishing the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) is the realisation of a vision and an ambition for a single African market which was birthed in the immediate post-colonial period even before many countries attained independence, and before the formation of the Organisation of African Unity (now African Union) in 1963. In this era when African countries sought to assert their political and economic independence, the ECA enabled the regular convening of the political leadership of the continent to address the economic aspirations and challenges of the continent. The role of intra-African trade as a critical component, driver and outcome of economic development is articulated in the resolutions which emanated from the annual ECA Conference of Ministers. The ECA Knowledge Management Digest is a series that highlights new developments in the area of Knowledge Management and Library services of the Commission. This volume is a contribution from ECA’s Knowledge repository and draws from its institutional memory in the delivery of its functions as a think-tank providing evidence-based policy recommendations and technical assistance.
