Engine Room For Economic Growth

African leaders have come together to create one African market between 54 Nation States. This comprehensive and historic plan was created in record time with the aim of leveraging Africa's growth and development through the implementation of AfCFTA. Africa is no longer business as usual as African leaders are working together to add value to Africa's immense resources and increase their economies. Also, Africa's private sector is becoming very proactive in order to take advantage of the new world order through industrializing Africa. This means that there are enormous opportunities for growth in the areas of investment, partnerships, and joint ventures in all economic and social development sectors, as the continent becomes a key emerging market for international trade and investment over the coming decades.
