The African Union (AU), established as a unique Pan African continental body, was charged with the responsibility to coordinate and provide overall guidance for the negotiations on the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA). GIZ supports the AfCFTA negotiation process through technical support to the relevant AU organs. The project in support of the AfCFTA works in close collaboration with multiple partners to support the content of free trade negotiations in the areas of trade in goods and services, trade facilitation, customs cooperation as well as on the various AfCFTA protocols and related annexes. The new Technical Assistance Facility to support the AfCFTA is meant to be an efficient, reactive and flexible mechanism to answer to the needs of the AU, other partners and regional private sector organisations, working on fostering the AfCFTA and economic continental integration.
