This module explores the AfCFTA in more detail, with a focus on its novelty and the potential markets to which it gives access. More specifically, this module covers the reasons why the levels of intra-African trade are low and how this issue is being addressed. It looks into the challenges raised by non-tariff barriers, poor infrastructure and insufficient access to finance and information faced by African enterprises wanting to engage in intra-African trade. It further aims to equip exporters to identify market opportunities within the current infrastructural framework in Africa.
