The AmCham Ghana AfCFTA Resource Centre has been created to serve as an information hub for U.S. businesses and provide a conducive environment for networking and partnership with Ghanaian businesses to take advantage of the trade agreement.

African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) is a flagship project of Agenda 2063 of the African Union — Africa’s own development vision. It was approved by the 18th ordinary Session of Assembly of Heads of State and Government, held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia in January 2012 which adopted the decision to establish a Continental Free Trade Area. This initiative whose immediate implementation would provide quick wins, impact on socio-economic development and enhance confidence and the commitment of Africans as the owners and drivers of Agenda 2063.

Data from the AfCFTA secretariat forecast that when fully implemented the agreement will represent the world’s largest free trade area, with 55 participating countries covering 1.2 billion people with a combined GDP of US$3.4trillion. Learn more
