Trade is key to Africa’s long-term sustainable economic growth and transformation. Boosting intra-African agricultural trade can help generate jobs for women and youth in agricultural value chains, raise incomes, and improve food security and nutrition. Recognizing the enormous potential benefits offered by trade, African leaders reaffirmed their commitment, through Agenda 2063 and the Malabo Declaration, to promoting greater intra-African trade. They have committed to raising the level of trade-related investments and to improving trade infrastructure, policies, institutions, and trade facilitation. Agenda 2063 calls for fast-tracking the establishment of a continental free trade area while the Malabo Declaration calls for tripling intra-African trade in agricultural commodities and services by 2025.
