Webinar: Understanding the Implementation fo AfCFTA

KAM hosted a webinar on the status of implementation of AfCFTA in partnership with National Trade Facilitation Agencies, including Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA), Kenya Bureau of Standards (KEBS) and Kenya Trade Agency (KenTrade).

Speaking during the session, KAM Chair, Mr Mucai Kunyiha, recognized the challenges and opportunities in AfCFTA.

“AfCFTA shall open up borders, both in the continent and globally. However, the level of trade amongst African countries remains low. Whereas AfCFTA enables intra-Africa trade, we still source for raw materials, intermediate goods and finished products from more developed markets, including China, Europe and the United States. We need to look at the opportunities for trade amongst ourselves and take advantage of them in order to build our competitiveness and productivity,” said Mr Kunyiha.
