2nd African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) Conference

The AfCFTA Conference will present the Agreement, the opportunities it creates, and the anticipated economic benefits, as well as potential pitfalls.

Milla SA invites you to attend the 2nd African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) Conference 25-26 July 2024, Durban, South Africa. The AfCFTA Conference will present the Agreement, the opportunities it creates, and the anticipated economic benefits, as well as potential pitfalls.

The Conference will also examine opportunities for women, young entrepreneurs, and small and medium enterprises. It will also explore ways to expand intra-African commerce, and to craft the trade rules and regulations needed to make the AfCFTA work for key industries and business owners.

Finally, the event will provide stakeholders with the information they need to access new markets and expand intra-African trade. In addition, the conference will provide a platform for professionals to debate how South Africa’s exporters can leverage the AfCFTA and utilise it as an instrument for economic growth. We look forward to you joining our speaker panel and share your experience and insights.
