Free Trade and Mobility Crucial for Africa to prosper

Delivering sustainable economic growth
Posted Dec 20, 2022 | Institute for Security Studies

A continental economic community in which goods, services and people move freely can help address the African continent’s developmental challenges and realise the aspirations of the African Union’s Agenda 2063. Mobility is thus intertwined with trade, notes Ottilia Anna Maunganidze in her article for the Institute for Security Studies. While Africa is on track to achieve free trade and informal cross-border trade is widespread, free movement of people is still lagging. For fragile and conflict-affected states it is particularly significant that formal trade channels are not adversely affected, as they provide traders with markets outside the fragmented and potentially failing domestic markets on which they otherwise rely.
