AfCFTA: Identifying sustainable regional value chains at continental scale
The overall objective of the proposed project is to attract investment and promote trade and sustainable industrial and business development at continental level, concretely supporting the AfCFTA Secretariat and the African Union and delivering on the Africa-EU partnership for sustainable growth and jobs.
The project contributes to this objective by
- identifying trade and investment opportunities along regional value chains with potential at continental scale in Africa, including potential for investment by EU economic operators;
- Strengthening the EU-Africa dialogue on trade and economic integration, informing high-level events such as the upcoming AU-EU Summit and European- African Business Forum (EABF)
- identifying pilot/selected continental value chains that could be targeted for support in the EU 2021-27 aid programming exercise.
It supports the implementation of the AfCFTA and ITC's One Trade Africa Initiative.
