Meet the World’s Largest Free Trade Area

African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA)

The African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) agreement will create the largest free trade area in the world measured by the number of countries participating. The pact connects 1.3 billion people across 55 countries with a combined gross domestic product (GDP) valued at US$3.4 trillion. It has the potential to lift 30 million people out of extreme poverty, but achieving its full potential will depend on putting in place significant policy reforms and trade facilitation measures.

And it couldn’t come at a better time. As a collective, the continent is embarking on a new economic path. In 2018, African heads of state signed an agreement that would bring to life the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA)—a game-changer in African regional and international trade. When it comes into effect in stages over the next several months and years, the AfCFTA will cover a new world market, with the potential of increasing intra-African trade by over 50 percent, according to the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa. According to the World Bank, meanwhile, the agreement could add $76 billion in income to the rest of the world. On its completion, the AfCFTA will become the largest free trade area in the world since the establishment of the World Trade Organization.

Fundamentally, the AfCFTA will put African economies—and African citizens—on a better economic footing. The agreement will enhance competitiveness and stimulate investment, innovation, and economic growth by increasing efficiency and eliminating barriers to trade. In fact, it will eliminate tariffs on 90 percent of goods and incrementally apply the same to services—this at a time when other regions of the world are rethinking trade agreements and economic integration. The removal of tariffs on goods in particular is projected to increase the value of intra-African trade by 15 to 25 percent by 2040. This would translate to between $50 billion and $70 billion in dollar value.

But to give the AfCFTA the best chance of delivering on its promises, the continent will need help and investment for updating its infrastructure.


Global Green Development Group (GGDG), based in California, the fifth largest economy in the world, is the founder of the African Global Economic & Development Summit, whose mission is to contribute positively to the inclusive economic and social development of Africa. Below is what we consider to be the fast track to engaging the emerging African Continent with hands-on trade marketing and entrepreneurial training opportunities in the United States. We have developed more focused, results-oriented programs below with three primary goals:

A.   Providing immediate cutting-edge tools to the important African energy (oil, gas, power) industries through short

targeted training with the best of the best USA and world experts in these fields.

B.   Immediate matchmaking of African traders and exporters to select interested counterparts in the United States.

C.   Implementable skill building instructions for civil servants and corporate personnel.

These programs are designed to help build upon the human capital of Africa and its Diaspora, and equip them for the 21st century global marketplace.

Investment Opportunities.png

Africa remains the continent with some of the fastest growing economies, as well the youngest globally. The continent’s youth dividend will also make the continent attractive as a potential global manufacturing base. Intra-continental supply chains are likely to come in vogue to ensure input security, working in tandem with envisaged roll out of the AfCFTA. The African community is ready - are you? Global Green Development Group (GGDG) offers investment opportunities which are fully vetted for sustainable development.

Diaspora as the “Sixth Region of Africa”

The United Nations has subdivided the African continent into five regions, Northern Africa, Central or Middle Africa , Southern AfricaEast Africa, and Western Africa.

The diaspora was constituted as the sixth region in 2003, by the AU to encourage the participation of people of African origin living outside the continent. The African Diaspora are Africans living in the U.S.; African Americans whose history is rooted in Africa; and people of the Caribbean of African descent living in the U.S.

Africans in the diaspora have “the skills and knowledge that would need to be mobilized” to promote the continent’s advancement. “It is therefore important to look strategically at the diaspora’s role in African development.” Consequently, they need to mobilize, organize and design a plan to influence U.S. policies toward Africa, the rest of the world and toward themselves as African Americans. GGDG has been on ground in Africa for the past 25 years building relationships and working towards sustainable development. Diaspora's can benefit immensely by participating in African growth and development. At the same time much growth can come from the diaspora partnering with U.S. businesses and leading the way on ground in helping to establish enabling environments. In the past a lot of World Bank/USAID projects have failed in Africa due to the lack of and unwillingness of U.S. led companies to take advise from the diaspora who knows the true nuances of Africa. If America is going to target Africa for trade, then it must take note that the diaspora can streamline the process and help pave the way. A key approach would be the provision of incentives for the African diaspora-led development initiatives. A starting point would be initiatives that are already off the ground, like many of the real time trade opportunities offered by GGDG.

For the Diaspora, the continent is enticing as an investment destination on many fronts. It remains the continent with the fastest growing economies of the world, and it holds tremendous opportunities for the Diaspora to research, discover, and act!
