AfCFTA creates one African market
2020- 2030 is Africa’s Decade for Women’s Financial and Economic Inclusion.
The decade is of great importance for African women and young girls to build momentum and consolidate the gains realised over the years in its efforts to close the existing gender gaps.
As women account for 70 per cent of the informal cross-border traders, they are set to benefit greatly from the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) with the reduction of both tariff and non-tariff barriers and implementing the simplified trade regimes, which will make it more affordable for informal traders to operate through formal channels.
