United Nations Global Assembly: Unstoppable Africa

On September 18, 2022, Florie Liser, President and CEO of CCA, moderated a session entitled “No Red Tape: Removing Our Own Trade Barriers: Accelerating The Africa Trade Area Agreement”. With AfCFTA implementation underway, members states are committed to eliminating trade barriers on most goods and services. However, these commitments must be supported by effective and practical regulations, flexible financing, and private sector ingenuity to accomplish the desired goal. Florie  was joined by a dynamic group of experts in these fields such as H.E. Jakaya Kikwete, Former President of Tanzania; Rebecca Grynspan, Secretary-General UNCTAD; Dr. Donald Kaberuka, Former AfDB President; H.E. Amb. Martin Kimani, Kenya Permanent UN Representative; and Tariye Gbadegesin, CEO of Arm Harith Infrastructure.
