The Africa Continental Free Trade Area: An opportunity to deepen cooperation on Regional public goods

Abstract

The Africa Continental Free Trade Area (AFCFTA) signed in March 2018 aims to establish a single market across the continent. This challenge is also an opportunity to extend the provision of regional public goods beyond hard infrastructure. Peace and security, mining, and energy are such examples covered in the Africa Economic Outlook 2019.
