    New pan-African trade bloc holds much promise for SA business

    From March 17 to March 21 this year, African Heads of State and Government held an Extraordinary Summit in Kigali, Rwanda. This was the 10th Extraordinary Summit of the African Union (AU) Assembly and the last day saw the signature of the agreement to establish the African Continental Free Trade Area – which is abbreviated to AfCFTA, not ACFTA. The agreement to create the AfCFTA was paralleled by the Kigali Declaration, which called for the “operationalisation” of the AfCFTA and for the start of the more ambitious Phase II talks, which will cover competition policy, intellectual property and investment. A protocol on the free movement of people was also signed. The AU has 55 member states, of which 44 signed the agreement creating the AfCFTA, 47 signed the Kigali Declaration and 30 signed the protocol on free movement. Five more countries – including South Africa – signed the AfCFTA agreement on July 1, taking the total to 49. The countries which have not yet signed are Benin, Botswana, Eritrea, Guinea-Bissau, Nigeria and Zambia.

Should the development of the second and third phase of the project not kick off “desperately” soon, Gauteng’s road network will be in a similar position to what is was about ten years ago, with freeway congestion expected to slow vehicles to less than 30 km/h.
