Themed Accelerating AfCFTA. Voices of youth, social enterprises and businesses, this event is hosted by the Centre on African Philanthropy and Social Investment

The African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) came into effect on 1 January 2021, bringing about the dawn of a new era where goods can move freely across the continent. The event will explore the acceleration of the AfCFTA in the context of Pan Africanism as the foundation to take Africa forward and address our current challenges. 

This aligns with the African Union’s Agenda 2063 plans to integrate the continent based on the ideals of Pan-Africanism and the visions of Africa’s renaissance. This is praiseworthy and warrants rallying the youth to back this movement and fully make use of the opportunities that this free trade agreement brings. Highlighting such initiatives and accomplishments, especially during Africa Month, is essential for the #AfricaWeWant.

The event is hosted by CAPSI in partnership with the Southern Africa Youth Forum (SAYoF-SADC), Mandela Institute for Development Studies (MINDS), Africa Philanthropy Network (APN).
