“The African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) represents the world’s largest free-trade zone. The agreement entered into force in May 2019 and trade was meant to begin on July 1, 2020. Unfortunately, this has been delayed six months due to COVID-19, as forty-two African countries navigate full or partial lockdowns in response.”
