Registration for Workshop on African Continental Free Trade Area and the Role of Logistics

The African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) without a doubt is one of the most promising trade agreements worldwide. With current intra-African trade being at a comparatively low level of 14% of total African exports, the AfCFTA can help facilitating the ambitious goal of doubling this number by 2035. Even though the AfCFTA has theoretically been in force since January 1, 2021, there are still unresolved issues so that the full potential of the agreement cannot yet be realized. However, once it takes off, the AfCFTA offers countless opportunities to completely rethink intra-African and also international logistics networks. Thereby, the goal is not only to increase intra-African trade but also to integrate African countries into global creation systems with a greater share of value added, and this would result in sustainable economic growth and increased real wages. This workshop aims to identify current logistics challenges of the AfCFTA across industries and to systematically discuss which potentials arise for the redesign of international logistics networks for the respective industries. Based on this, we will develop logistics strategies to leverage the identified potential in the long term.

The workshop will be held as a joint action by TU Berlin, Chair of Logistics, University of Rwanda and GIZ. The workshop takes place on 7 September 2022 from 9:00 to 16:15 in Kigali, Rwanda. More information about the workshop agenda can be found here.
