The African Union has established the operational phase of an African free trade agreement on July 7 2019.

Inter-country trade is exceptionally low in Africa compared with Asia and Europe, but the agreement could create $3.2-trillion in trade within the continent.

Deputy editor of Business Day, Tiisetso Motsoeneng, reports.

Africa’s largest trade agreement, the African Continental Free Trade Area agreement, has been hailed as a game-changer for intra-African trade.
