To accelerate the implementation of the AfCFTA, UN Economic Commission for Africa (ECA), Trademark East Africa and the Kenya State Department for Trade organised a Forum together to discuss the draft national strategy for Kenya to harness the benefits of the AfCFTA. About 60 participants attended the event in Nairobi. They included government officials, trade economists, university professors, development partners and youth and women’s representatives. During the meeting, explained the ambitious nature of the AfCFTA, saying that AfCFTA is not, as its name denotes, simply a 'free trade area'; It encompasses ambitions to proceed to a single unified continental market, with a lot of implications for business – whether that is on investment, on competition, on intellectual property, or free movement.
