Webinar on the Political Economy of the African Continental Free Trade Area
So far, there has not been a lot of discussion on African Continental Free Trade Agreement (AfCFTA) in Europe and Germany. Generally speaking, AfCFTA is welcomed as an African initiative. But there is a lack of discussion as to potential pitfalls of the AfCFTA.
The ultimate aim of the webinar was to get a better understanding on how European policies must be crafted in order to support the realization of increased economic integration and prosperity within Africa. How will AfCFTA reshape economic relations between and within African countries? Which countries will probably win, which will probably lose? We have discussed these and other questions with:
- Jane Nalunga (Country Director SEATINI-Uganda)
- Helmut Scholz (MEP, GUE/NGL)
- Eva-Maria Schreiber (MdB, DIE LINKE)
- Ndongo Samba Sylla (RLS Dakar)
Moderation: Samuel Kasirye (RLS Dar es Salaam)
