AIM Africa will cover vital issues that will propel the region’s positive transformation towards its growth and productivity such as the opportunities of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA), the world’s largest free trade area, which aims to connect 55 African countries to form a single continent- wide market for goods and services, stimulating more trade and investment. The agreement is expected to expand intra-African trade, boost industrialization, increase job opportunities, and enhance the global competitiveness of African industries.
This edition will also focus on Africa’s digital economy which is becoming one of the primary drivers of the region’s development. Digitalization is deemed as one of the most potent instruments for the effective implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and Africa’s Agenda 2063 and is expected to open up fresh income generation opportunities for millions of people affected by poverty in the region.
