5. Trade integration: to support small businesses in building competitiveness and participating in trade across Africa and globally, and the role of the AfCFTA.

The overarching objective is to drive forward the effective implementation of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA). To this end, the 2024 Prosperity Africa Conference aims to release the '2024 Chambers and Business Associations Implementation Plan on AfCFTA.' This initiative seeks to foster collaboration between the private sector and policymakers, providing guidance for navigating the intricate terrain of the AfCFTA.
