Afieln Conference

African International Economic Law Network Pre-Conference Newsletter

Africa, a continent brimming with potential, is at a crucial crossroads amidst a confluence of crises that challengeits socioeconomic fabric. The launching of the operational phase of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) and the recent conclusion of three Phase II instruments in the areas of competition policy, investment, and intellectual property rights are excellent achievements toward the realisation of the dream of the AfricanUnion’s Founders. However, these tremendous steps seem to have been overshadowed by global geopolitical tensions, the rising cost of living, and the ensuing cascade of sovereign debt crises in a post-pandemic recovery world.
