Join us virtually for the launch of this year's PAFTRAC CEO Trade Survey & Report, which is steadily becoming the key private sector barometer on intra-African trade and investment.
This year’s Pan-African Private Sector Trade and Investment Committee (PAFTRAC) CEO Trade Survey has been compiled by IC Publications in conjunction with Afreximbank. CEOs from all companies operating in Africa were entitled to take part, most representing firms registered on the continent.
More than 800 chief private sector leaders completed the survey between March and May 2022, allowing us to gauge their views on the implementation of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA), current African trade flows, and their trade-related ambitions for their own companies.
This year clearly shows that the vast majority of African CEOs believe that implementing the AfCFTA will positively affect levels of intra-African trade, even as early as 2022-23. A total of 93% were confident to some extent that it would have a positive impact, with 26% describing themselves as very confident.
Join us on October 13 for the PAFTRAC CEO Trade Survey digital launch, as we discuss how to further advance the AfCFTA implementation process through greater private sector collaboration.
